ahhhhhhhhhhhh!! I love this whole Laoshan green series so much. So so much. This one’s such a lovely sweet green, it’s definitely sweeter and lighter and a bit more pea-like and i think even a bit creamier than the standard Laoshan Green, I definitely prefer this one. It has so much wonderful vegetal, like light peas and lettuce, nice smooth flavour from around the 2nd to 4/5th steeps in my Gaiwan; those few steeps are some of the greatest tea I regularly drink. Unfortunately, it does seem to lose its flavour a bit quicker than other teas, but even after it has started to lose its flavour, it’s still really sweet and.. it makes me think of a really pure spring with crystal clear water. So lovely to sip, I thought I’d try to save it a bit, and not drink it too much since Verdant isn’t the cheapest store, but it’s hard to help myself, especially with this one.
Give one of the Laoshan greens a try if you haven’t already. You won’t regret it.
Oh, and I just noticed it’s mildly astringent, especially in later steeps but then I didn’t want to take the time to put it in my review properly so yeah :)
