I was thrilled to see some of this in my package from MissB. I had wanted to try this but it was sold out when I did my last Verdant order. This is definitely interesting, and easy to see the Laoshan green tea bones in this tea. To me there is more of the dragonwell-style to this than the regular Laoshan green (more buttery, I think) but it’s been a while since I’ve had either. There is a hint of sweetness that lingers on the palate afterward. It isn’t really floral like a Tieguanyin, but it’s got a bit more heft to it than the regular Laoshan green tea. I do really enjoy this tea and I’m so glad I finally got to try it.
If it seems like I am drinking all samples these days, well, I am. I’m grateful for all the samples folks have sent me lately (including this one, a surprise from MissB!), but I’m trying to drink down all the samples before I embark on an epic journey in which I drink every tea in my cupboard (trying not to repeat any) from oldest to newest.
