My hubby and I are planning on moving into a new home this summer. Choosing cabinets, comparing countertops, rethinking paint samples…it’s been an exciting process. Figuring out what to do with our yard is officially next up on our to-do list. With the wretched California drought staring us in the face, we’re actually having to consider the option of synthetic grass now (boo!). I’m not sure what will become of our yard, but with Den’s Tea’s Gyokuro Suimei I know I can always count on an authentically grassy experience–drought or no drought.
The thin, string-like needles of Den’s Tea’s Gyokuro Suimei produce a richly vibrant green liquor that’s bursting with spring vegetable flavor. One of the marked characteristics of this tea is the color of the brew, which looks and tastes as if the tea was juiced not just steeped. If you like your green tea to brew to true green (not yellow, amber, or brown), then this is definitely the cup for you.
I love to treat this Japanese green tea as one of my very special green teas, not for the everyday. It’s a slightly pricier tea but absolutely worth it if you are an avid green tea lover. As the days get warmer, this is delicious when prepared as an overnight, cold brew. Enjoying it this way will help to accentuate the fresh, bright qualities of this tea…super refreshing and crisp to the last drop!
Tasting Notes for Den’s Tea’s Gyokuro Suimei:
Cant wait to hear about where you’re moving! (And that green is gorgeous.)
Yes, we have lots to talk about! 🙂
Moving house is a lot more exhausting than anticipated. I am moving at the moment as well 😉
Love your pictures Bonnie, the gyokuro sounds very intriguing, especially the cold version!
Ya, I’m really not thrilled with the process of moving. Hope all goes well for you B! You would love this gyokuro–it’s very flavorful and clean tasting. Perfect for replenishing after an exhausting move. 🙂
I’m definitely an avid tea drinker, so I think I will definitely give it a try and see if I can find it. And I love that food pairing.
This is one of my favorite green teas…hope you can try sometime soon K! 🙂
New home? How exciting! Planning and picking is pretty fun! Enjoy! The idea of having synthetic grass sounds great! Definitely would save some water and money.
This tea sounds super interesting. Spring vegetable flavor? I would love to try!
Synthetic grass is not really my thing, but the landscape guy told me everybody is doing it in California these days! This tea is very delicious, packs tons for fresh grassy flavor in each sip! 🙂
Thank you so much Steph! Hope you are having a fabulous Monday! 😉

Aww, that is so sweet of you to think of me! Where did you go tea tasting, Hetal!?
At this place called Imperial Tea here in SF – http://www.imperialtea.com/category-s/1881.htm
I tried a jasmine green tea with these delicious almond biscuits that I practically inhaled and matcha pumpkin seeds, which were surprisingly yummy!
