From Verdant Tea (Special)

Verdant Reserve Club – August

After accidentally stumbling into a back-alley teahouse on a rainy night in Hangzhou, I met the family behind this tea. Jingshan is totally off the radar in terms of famous green tea growing regions, despite being much more prized and famous in the early days of tea.

In thinking about green teas, I consider Jingshan and it’s Yunnan flavors to perfectly span the middle of the spectrum from the rich green of Laoshan to the crisp sweetness of Dragonwell.

The aroma of the Jingshan steeping in a glass tumbler is that of wild clover and amaranth in the rain.

Early steepings are gentle but thick and silky. Light notes of cucumber and lavender come through in the aftertaste. The tea is sweet like fresh endives, and smooth like whipped cream.

The sweet florals and citrus flavors linger on the tongue and in the back of the throat, making for a wonderfully refreshing summer brew.

Finishing this one off this afternoon. Steeped in a gaiwan but each steeping combined into one cup. There is something about a snowy day that makes me think of a light, springy green tea. I do enjoy a nice, crisp, nutty green, but I think the “reserve”-ness of this is wasted on me, haha. Perhaps one day I will need to restock a plain green but right now I think my cupboard is fine without one.

Beautiful & fluffy to look at, in pale shades of cream & sage. I went with the test tube steeper, which is my preferred method for greens these days, & short steepings. A delecate tea with essence of cucumber & lavendar. Probably my least favorite green from Verdant, but a good palate cleanser after drinking my beloved black teas all morning, & a nice segue to something else.
