Tamayokucha from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Guricha / Tamaryokucha – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 30th, 2014

I actually found this tea to be refreshing and clean. It's simple, but not in a way that's bitter or at all unpleasant. I brewed it a short time at 175 °F and was pleasantly surprised by how very drinkable it is. The aroma is very light and the infusion is a pale green. Its a bit plain by itself, so I recommend drinki...

Very good tea. It has a slightly nutty, very vegetal scent and taste, which I love. The dry aroma is pungent and pleasant in the same way as the brewed tea. It tastes somewhere between a gyokuro and China Green Tips, by Tazo (if I'm remembering those flavors accurately). It hasn't caused me any throat irritation the wa...

The aroma of this tea is a wonderfully mild mix of chestnuts, scupernongs, and a touch of citrus. Once brewed the leaves take on a more hay aroma which blends really nicely with the chestnut.

The taste is very mild and delicious! Sweetness with mild vegetal aftertastes. I will have to get my hands on more of this o...

The aroma is very green and vegetal with a slight hint of citrus. More like orange blossoms than orange fruit though, so I can see it also being considered floral.

The flavor is also very green, and not in a bad way. Very light and also very bright! The taste is more like grass than vegetables, which is something I...

I haven't had much Guricha so I can't compare this tea -- overall I thought it was good.

I liked this tea warm -- it was smooth and had a subtle flavor.

My only qualm was that it tasted a little burnt and strong when it got cold -- blech! I wouldn't recommend this for an iced tea.

A high-end Japanese green tea, which I found infuses fast and is tricky to steep more than once. The first cup is excellent, but I was a bit let down overall, especially with how tough this one is to brew multiple times.

This tea was so similar to Wegmans' Okumidori Sencha in color and smell (and was the same exact...

Dec. 5th, 2012

I only had one teabag to play with, and I think I brewed it badly. I followed the instruction on the packet to brew it for five minutes. It didn't say what temperature to use, so I guessed 175F or so, which I think was a mistake.

Aroma-wise, the leaves were pleasantly citrusy, but once I brewed it, the aroma turned ...

I just had this tea with my lunch and was surprised to see all of the negative ratings about it. Like the description I found that it has a light taste and to me it was crisp and refreshing. It had a different flavor than most green teas I've tried and I feel like tangy was a good way to describe it, but I didn't encou...

I am a big fan of green teas and tried this one today. It is a bit bland tasting, but that's kind of how green tea is in general. I thought it tasted better than it smelled. I would say this tea is about average. I would drink again, but not necessarily choose it if there were other teas to drink.

I am not a big green tea drinker to begin with, so I can't say for sure if my review is based on my general opinion of green teas or this tea in particular. It is certainly a drinkable tea, and when you first taste it it has a nice, full flavor. But there's a weird, almost soap-like aftertaste that I didn't like. De...

Oct. 4th, 2009

This is the only example of guricha or tamaryokucha that I've tried, so I have no idea how typical it is. It seemed a lot more like gyokuro than any other type of green tea.

I find this tea painstakingly difficult to brew in a way I like. Brewing with a very low temperature is essential...otherwise this tea acquir...
