Thanks to the purchase of a thermometer and proper brewing technique, this tea is beautiful in flavour and taste. Worth the price. Thank you Teavana!

Nice but pricey

By Kevin

from NOLA, USA

Comments about Teavana Uji Gyokuro Green Tea:

First off, this is a delicate tea. Please use proper temperature and time. That being said, this is a lighter, smoother Gyokuro with more of a "wild" flavor and less aftertaste. It can be "gamey" if brewed incorrectly, but overall its nice. I would probably go back to the Gyokuro Imperial after trying this, but it was a nice alternative.

Uji Gyokuro

By Ryan

from Fresno

Comments about Teavana Uji Gyokuro Green Tea:

I recently wrote a negative review of this tea with a 4 star rating, I am retaining the same rating but adding this: after adjusting the steep time it has improved quite notably... I would definitely suggest not to brew this tea longer than 1 minute 30 seconds at 175°. After this adjustment (from 2 minutes) the flavor is much better and doesn't nearly have the "fishiness". I should have tried different steep times before my initial review so I apologize. I still prefer the Gyokuro Imperial's flavor however.

So so, but no

By Ryan the Green Tea Conoisseur

from Fresno

Comments about Teavana Uji Gyokuro Green Tea:

For the price I wasn't impressed and the Uji seems to have a slight fishiness which I hate. Overall its not horrible, but I wouldn't buy again especially for the price. I'll be purchasing the Gyokuro Imperial instead. Gyokuro Imperial has an overall better flavor and fuller body which I prefer. Even after the full 2 minute steep time it is quite light and lacking flavor, whereas the Imperial steeps for only 45 seconds with amazing flavor. I understand that "hand picked" is a sought after benefit of green tea, but in this case it's not worth it. Not quite sure how the higher-ups tasted it and said to themselves, "oh this is definitely worth the price", if I was them I woulda kicked it back to the so called "award winning garden" and told them to try again.

Comments about Teavana Uji Gyokuro Green Tea:

Green tea doesn't get better than this! Looking at the dry tea leaves it is obvious that this special batch is very high quality. Uji Gyokuro is aromatic, smooth, and has a pleasant savory aftertaste. Enjoy this magnificent tea without additives to fully experience the wonderful flavor. Worth the price, no questions asked!
