From Verdant Tea

Crafted 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 tea highlights Mr. He’s delicate and meticulous hand rolling and straightening technique developed in producing Pine Needle Green, but introducing traditional sun-oxidation to make a rich and deeply complex black tea. The result is Lashan’s most mineral-forward and complex black tea to date. This 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 finished tea picks up the rocky minerality of the soil, and careful low temperature roasting brings out deep brown sugar sweetness.

This review is for the Autumn 2018 version. This tea brews up fairly light in the gaiwan. And the flavor profile matches it. The main tasting notes on Verdant describe barley and toast and I think that is accurate. Definitely has a light toasted quality. I would describe this as an acceptable daily sipper. Nothing super special but with a pleasant drinkability. Either way, I am just getting into being able to drink caffeinated teas again due to a chronic health condition and boy have I missed it.
