Taster’s Review:

A bagged Gyokuro?  Yes, I had my doubts, which may just be why it took me so long to actually try this tea.  I received one of these pyramid sachets as a free sample with my order last year.  I stashed the foil package into one of my many tea caddies and forgot about it until last night while rummaging through my stash.  I decided it was time to give it a try.

And even though I’ve had this for a year, the flavor is still intact.  And it is VERY good.  Yes, even though it’s bagged.  It has a mouth-watering, brothy vegetative taste that is sweet and clean.  And to tell you the truth, had I not brewed this myself, I don’t know that I would be able to tell the difference between this and a loose leaf Gyokuro.

I’m very impressed.
