This Gyokuro from Drink the Leaf is deliciously nutty and sweet.
I really LOVE this one! Another winner from Talbott Teas! They are quickly becoming one of my favorite overall Tea Companies!
I would recommend this tea to just about anyone – even those that dislike Earl Grey teas! The sweet, creamy finish offsets the bergamot in this blend enough so that even the most finicky Earl Grey detractors would probably find this enjoyable.
It’s highly flavored – on the tongue – and pretty good hot. Once it turns cold I find it a bit bitter….not in a bad way – just noticed a flavor change when it cools, that’s all. I don’t mind it cold but prefer this hot, actually.
I really like how the peach flavor and rooibos work together in this blend. The woodsy note of the rooibos actually enhances the peach flavor by cutting through some of the sweetness.
