From Verdant Tea

Produced By the He Family

Pioneers and community leaders in Laoshan Village, the He family was one of the first to plant tea on the misty ocean-facing slopes of the Taoist Holy Mountain they call home.

This harvest is picked in the cool autumn air after resting the plant through summer. The result is crisp, fresh flavor with more savory green bean and cream that Laoshan for which Laoshan is famous. The He family’s signature green tea is fed by mountain spring water, picked by hand, and cultivated sustainably using traditional chemical-free farming techniques including growing rows of soybean between rows of tea to restore nitrates to the soil. The extreme northern climate means cold winters and short growing seasons, but the He Family perseveres, protecting their tea in greenhouses over the winter. The result is a deeply sweet and delicate green tea unlike any other in the world. This year in particular, dry and mild weather leading up to autumn in has yielded the sweetest picking in years, but a tiny yield due to reduced rainfall. The He family produced less than half of what they usually would this year.

I normally enjoy Laoshan tea but this recent harvest isn’t doing it for me. It’s got the usual vegetal notes – zucchini, edamame, and cilantro being the prominent ones I picked out – but something about it tastes off, like overripe fruit. It reminds me of pears or honeydew that sat out too long. At the moment, it’s been banished to my work stash where my less loved but still palatable teas go. It tastes better cold brewed or blended with a flavored tea so that’s probably how I’ll drink the rest of it.

Flavors: Coriander, Pear, Soybean, Zucchini

How disappointing! :(

hmm.. I don’t know if I’m usually noticing an overripe fruit note with this one, but it sounds interesting.

@tea-sipper, usually this is a good tea but something is a little different about the taste this time. Could also have been affected by keeping it in cold storage
