I finally got my hands on my new order from Verdant! And it turns out that all three of the teas I ordered are from Yunnan. Ah well, at least I know what I like. And I get to try a white, a green, and a black from the same region.

So, I think this is the first un-flavored green tea I’ve ever tried. (Other than matcha, but that’s a whole different game.) I brewed this western style, steeping it for minutes, which is longer than I meant to, but I had to stop and find a clean mug.

The aroma of this is very nice, with the roasted pumpkin seeds smell I associate with green tea, and a floral aroma, and maybe something similar to white wine? (Although the whites I drink are very floral, so.)

The taste is very mild, with a floral note my head keeps insisting is jasmine, even though I know this isn’t a jasmine, and a slightly astringent texture. And again, there’s that nice roasted note.

All in all, very good, but not likely to convert me from my black tea drinking ways.
