This is one of the teas from the Verdant sampler pack I ordered last summer (I think?). Although I tried Laoshan Black ASAP to see what all the fuss was about, I’ve been avoiding the rest of the set ever since. It’s not because I wasn’t eager to try the remaining teas, but because I’ve given up on gongfu-style steeping—I just don’t enjoy it—yet sometimes like I’m wasting good tea with my lazy Western-style ways. Anyway, today I decided to get over it and jump back in with a (single, large) cup of Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green. And I’m very glad I did. It’s rich and creamy, redolent with flavors of spinach, green beans, asparagus, and even edamame. This is definitely one I’d consider picking up more of at some point.
