From Verdant Tea

Bai Ji Guan is a rare and unique varietal in Wuyi. The Li Family cultivates a small amount of Bai Ji Guan on their mountainside plot. This extremely light, beautiful, almost Dancong-like tea is full of the mineral notes that define Wuyi. It is thick and packed with unique vegetal undertones and florals. The Li Family’s careful cultivation and roasting means gorgeous giant light-colored leaves and a bright crisp brew.

Second Verdant oolong of the evening. This was from when I belonged to the tea club an eon ago, which I really enjoyed. I have many of those teas still to drink (tried most of them), but it will be a fun time when I get to go through the straight tea/Verdant bin! Luckily most are well-sealed and straight teas, so aside from the greens, flavour loss is minimal if at all.

Off-track. This tea, by contrast, is not floral. Wet earth/dirt is what comes to mind when I smell the cup; it’s not unpleasant, but it’s certainly a mustier/drier smell. Familiar, though. Almost like… leafhopper-bitten teas, or a darjeeling? I’m grasping; I wish I could pinpoint what I’m tasting. The taste is initially somewhat sweet, which is an odd contrast to the aroma. This tea is more drying than the previous one; my tongue feels the sharpness a bit, especially on the initial sip. I think it’s actually that mustier flavour giving it the astringency. Curious.

Definitely prefer the other wuyi oolong, as creaminess and lack of astringency are my preference. This one is just okay.
