As many of you know (or may not know?), I’m a huge tea drinker and have probably 20 different types of tea in my apartment (tea is addicting). I wanted to let everyone know about my new favorite tea, the Yama Kushu Gyokuro (or Yame Kyushu Gyokuro as it says on my bag) from Wellness Tea Dynasty. Take a look:
The first thing you’ll notice is that the instructions are written CLEARLY on the packaging which helps create the perfect cup of tea (I </3 tea that has been steeped too long). Did you know that depending on what type of tea you’re making, you’re supposed to steep it at a different temperature and time? Pro Tip: Don’t order tea from Starbucks — the water they use is way too hot and by the time you figure out how long to steep it for, it is probably too late.
The first thing you’ll notice is that they expanded and are now overflowing from the tray! I wonder if I could’ve used less leaves when making it and still had the same taste? When it comes to tea, I don’t question the tea masters so I don’t think I’m going to attempt it.
The Final Product
The tea has a very light color and I was afraid that it wasn’t going to taste like anything — I was wrong! This tea has a complex flavor that isn’t overly strong (like cheap teas), great mild flavors, and a refreshing aftertaste. What I’m trying to say is this tea will make your tastebuds happy.
If you like green tea, I highly recommend trying the Yama Kushu Gyokuro from Wellness Tea Dynasty. It’s one of the most expensive teas on the website but this high quality tea is definitely worth every penny. This post took a long time to write and I think it’s time for me to make another cup.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional tea drinker nor do I know everything about teas. The only thing I truly know is that I like this one 😀
