This tea came in my last order from Verdant – at times the traditional dragonwells seem a little light on flavor for me but I have always enjoyed the Laoshan greens I got from Verdant.
1st steep: around 2.5 minutes at 180 in the infuser mug. This is a very vegetal tea which reminds me of green beans but also has a creamy, almost vanilla like flavor lurking in the background. It is not wimpy, no Sir-eeee! It tastes like something that was just picked out of the garden. Not very astringent at all.
2nd steep: Just as nice as the first. A little sweeter now as the vegetal notes are fading slightly, but still so tasty! I think this tea is definitely a keeper!
