Tea Review: Gyokuro Kukicha (Chaho Kanekichi-en)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 6

Gyokuro Kukicha
Chaho Kanekichi-en/金吉園
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka
Product Description: Not Provided.

Temperature: 140° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 1 minute

The dry leaves have a fresh green, savory, nutty aroma.

The infusion is green and bright with a grassy green, nutty, thick and savory aroma. The taste is green, rich and nutty with light astringency.

While the first infusion had the most character, I enjoyed the bolder green flavor that came out in the second and third steepings.
