Spring 2019 harvest
This was a 5g sample that I split over 2 sessions. I’m a commitment phobe who hates buying tea in large quantities so I love the fact that Verdant offers samplers for all of their teas. Aside from 25g of regular Laoshan green which is pretty consistent every year, I bought a dozen or so 5g samples of every one of their green teas.
My Instagram note aptly sums up this tea: “Delicate body, dew like sweetness, and refreshing.” This year’s crop was light and delicate, like spring mix salad. Notes of fennel, oats, and a little toastiness. Very nice overall, but not quite as good as the spring harvest from a few years ago.
Flavors: Fennel, Lettuce, Oats, Soybean
