This is what I’m drinking tonight. The packaging says to consume before August 2014, but it seemed very well preserved in its airtight baggie. This was a lovely gift from my mother for my birthday in March of last year. I’d more or less given up tea drinking for a while there. I did a very quick steep of this one, as I am not the biggest fan of Gyokuro. I much prefer sweeter, less vegetal green teas. This one is very pleasant. I’m rating it pretty high, because it might be my favorite Gyokuro I’ve ever had, based almost solely on the fact that I love its aftertaste.
Now on to install cat shelves/hammock tonight!
