From Chado Tea House

NEW Product! Nice Gyokuro from Fukuoka, Kyushu island. Yame area in Fukuoka is known for Gyokuro producing center (take about 45 percent of share). Tea farms are located on slope of mountain and the area’s warm and foggy condition provides ideal climate for Gyokuro cultivation. This Yame Gyokuro is bit like supreme Sencha. Aromatic and sweet and smooth mouth feel.

Nicely deep steamed and very bright beautiful green.

Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this amazing tea from Chado Tea House. I love Gyokuro… and this one is remarkably good.

I am backlogging this because on Wednesday afternoon (technically yesterday, as it is now early in the AM on Thursday) I rolled my ankle and was taken to the ER to make sure I didn’t break it. Fortunately I did not, but it is still very painful. This is the tea that I drank while sitting in front of the TV trying to forget my pain with the help of painkillers. Why is it that doctors are so afraid to give pain killers when we are in pain? Yeah yeah, addiction, blah blah blah. But, when I’m in pain, I’m really not concerned with becoming addicted to something that will help me not hurt. At this point, I’d rather not hurt and run the risk of an addiction than to keep the pain at a “tolerable” level and not become addicted.

end of rant

Anyway… this was really nice. Crisp, vegetative, and soothing … and for a moment while observing the beauty of the tea I was able to forget about the pain. Just a moment, but it was a lovely moment.


Yikes! Feel better soon! A trick for the ER I’ve learned over the years, after having to go for migraines, back pain and stomach pain is to ask for morphine. If they give you enough (!) it’ll last long enough for you to sleep.

Autistic Goblin

Ouch! I don’t know about morphine but I usually get Tylenol 3 and that works wonders :D


Jeeez, glad to hear it wasn’t broken. I feel your pain. I didn’t get any pain meds when I sprained my ankle either…same reason. I wanted to smack the guy with my cane! Anyway…feel better!!


Yeah, they gave me ibuprofen 600mg … and I’m like, I need something stronger than that. They wanted to give me anti-inflammatory which is why the ibuprofen, but, I’m like, OK, then give me some vicodin too. Sheesh. I HURT!


Ouch. =( When I was young I had an Ace bandage on my ankle like every other week. It was ridiculous how frequently I twisted it. It rarely happens now, but I still remember the pain. Hope your ankle heals quickly!


Ha I didn’t even get that! Doc just told me to take aleve when I got home. More like I took my last vicodin from a procedure a month ago when I got home….which led my hubbins to calling me Dr. House for the night. :p


Aweeee I hope you are better soon!!

Bummer! A year & half ago I injured my foot by thinking I was at the bottom of the stairs & stepping off, about 3 steps early or so. crash, boom, no fun. I was on crutches for 6 weeks, & had no stability on that foot for months. I’m just now getting where the stability is reliable enough to ride my Harley again. You have my sympathy, & I hope this heals fast for you, I know it’s no fun. I strongly recommend gel ice packs for pain & swelling.

Donna A

Hope you make a quick recovery. Terri is right about ice packs. Was it a sprain? Sometimes those are as bad as fractures. My college daughter had an ankle sprain and had to go to Physical Therapy for a few weeks, but made a full recovery.


Ooh, that sucks! Hope you get better soon! As for the pain killer thing, I’ve never seen doctors who were hesitant to give out pain killers before…I guess it’s the area I live in. I can’t imagine telling D.C. people that they can’t have pain killers!

Sorry to hear about your ankle, but glad you got a good gyokuro brewed.


@CHAroma: they even had posted in my hospital procedure room a notification that they will basically prescribe the minimum amount and the way it read is basically: “we know you’re hurting, and we’ll help you with that, but, you’re not going to get something that is strong enough to knock out all your pain. You’ll still be hurting, just not as much.” And as I’m reading that, I’m thinking, Oh great … I’m in pain and they’re already making it clear to me that they’re not going to give me full pain relief. My husband on the other hand, he has corporal tunnel and on a monthly prescription for vicodin and they tell him that he should be taking the vicodin regularly, before he starts to feel pain.


Wow, that’s just insane. I’m one of those people that is extremely intolerant of pain. If you poke me, I cry. I can’t imagine being in real pain and having a Doctor say something to me like that notice. In my opinion, that’s absolutely ridiculous. Is it really that common for people to get addicted to pain killers? Or is it that the people who are already addicted are constantly trying to get more, so doctors only want to give the minimum amount so there’s none left over to sell to an addict?


I don’t know … I think that we hear all the sensational headlines about people – mainly celebrities – that become addicted to painkillers and I think that we’ve become such a legal action society that everyone is more worried about their legal positioning than about the job that they’re supposed to be doing. I just don’t want to hurt. When I hurt, the last thing I’m thinking is “I hope I don’t become addicted to this stuff.” And yeah, it happens and people don’t intend for it to happen and it’s a sad thing when it does. But, you can’t blame the emergency room for an addiction … they were doing what was best for the patient at the time.


Terri HarpLady

They should at least give you 3 – 5 days worth of something good, usually the really bad throbbing pain of a sprain or even a break is over after a few days, and a few days worth of good dope for pain isn’t going to make you an addict! Sure, it will still hurt after that, but by then you can manage it with some tylenol 3 or some such.


owww! get well hun, and rest up! xx


Yikes! I see the story now! I too wish they’d give out stronger painkillers… although I’m not sure I’d react well to them. The last (and only) two times I was given Tylenol 3 (wisdom teeth and blood clot), I fainted…

Anyways, hopefully you have a speedy recovery, and the painkillers you do have help a bit.

A strong green tea! A nice Grassy-green with a bit of sweeter-grass towards the end of the sip! Smells like grass & Veggies! Tastes more grassier than vegetal tho. It finishes smoother than I thought and I like that! Everything from dry loose leaf to post infusion color to aroma and taste SCREAM vibrant and brilliantly intense GREEN! Wonderful!

I actually had this tea for the first time in the small town/village of Hita in Kyushu itself. The lady working at the tea vendor was very kind and let me drink a cup or so along with some sort of gelatinous Japanese tea snack. I’ll always associate this tea and maybe gyokuro teas in general with this experience from now on.
I couldn’t get enough so I bought enough to last me a long time back in America. It has a very nice typical gyokuro sweetness but it had a little bit of that sencha grassiness and bitterness in it as well. All around a great tea.
