Thin needle leaves float on top of the water, unfurling to reveal their their pale green color. The liquor is a light silvery green. The flavor is at first delicate almost to a fault, but it expands quickly on the palate, moving from spun sugar to toasted artichoke. A shorter (2 min) second steep expounds the vegetal taste, while avoiding open bitterness. The mouth-drying aftertastes are of light fresh pine and sugar.
Those chinese green tea enthusiasts interested in more assertive flavors should look first to our new Luan Guapian or the time tried classic Lung Ching.
