I returned from a weekend getaway to cooler weather in Atlanta, so before I even unpacked I was thinking about what tea I might be in the mood for. I don’t usually jump for the whites first, but for some reason, I pulled out the Laoshan White that I received in early August. I used 4 Gm for 6 oz water at 175 starting with a quick rinse followed by a 20 second steep, just as suggested. I increased the steep time to 25 seconds for steepings 2-3, and 35 seconds for steepings 4-5, getting plenty of flavor all the way through. I would agree with others who commented that this was unlike many whites; it had more flavor than I expected and literally filled my mouth with its juicy freshness. The flavor was reminiscent of the smoothness and lingering sweet aftertaste of something I’ve had before, but I’m not sure what—very satisfying though. Now, what to do next? Unpack, or sample another Verdant tea?
