I loved Laoshan Black and have been looking forward to trying the Laoshan Green. So far I’m noticing that it smells way different — this one smells almost like seaweed. It looks like the same twisty little leaves, though! I’m brewing this with a low temperature after reading other people’s comments. Let’s get to it!

The brew definitely has a green, seaweedy smell — totally different than it’s black tea cousin. The tea itself is very light in color and has a grassy taste. It’s possible I did not steep this long enough, but I didn’t want to risk a bitter cup. I can almost taste the vitamin C in this — it’s like eating a mouthful of greens (which may sound bad to some people, I don’t mean it that way).

Resteeping was successful, the smell was stronger but the taste was lighter. Interesting. I liked this tea, but not nearly as much as the Laoshan Black! In fact, maybe I should order some more Black today…
