While I have not had extensive exposure to Gyokuro, from the ones I’ve tried thus far I’ve found that I’m not that big of a fan of drinking them gong fu (though I do get highly buzzed drinking them that way!) because they just taste a bit too strongly of seaweed/marine notes for me… but I have really enjoyed them cold brewed, which seems to bring out a cleaner, sweeter taste. Since I’ve been exclusively cold brewing lately, I grabbed this 20g sample that I got from Yunomi back in 2018; they source it from Nishide Tea Factory in Kyoto.

With a straight green tea, my preference is 5g for a liter pitcher. Brewed this way, I’m getting a very refreshing brew, with a clean green taste that has a more subtle seaweed note, as well as fresh, sweet grass, peas, cucumber, and mineral water. I get a sweet melon sort of note left in my mouth in the aftertaste of the swallow.

Lovely cold brew, even for such old green tea.
