drank Songyang White by Verdant Tea
1195 tasting notes

This tea piqued my curiosity so much that I decided to try it first form my Verdant order.

I steeped it following the directions on the site. I used about 6.5 ounces, knowing by the time I spilled it I’d have 2/3 of a cup. Worked out. I sprinkled a teaspoon of leaves into the cup, swirled it, let it steep for 20 seconds and poured it into a mug through a strainer.

The first few sips were creamy, and gave me like a sparkling wine impression. It was light, but something was there. Now it’s cooled a bit, and it smells and tastes like buttery green vegetables.

Onto the second steep! This is really like the green tea ice cream mentioned on the page! It’s so sweet and creamy. And it’s leaving a feeling similar to carbonation on my tongue.

Third is similar, less sparkling and maybe like a bit of citrus mixed with edamame. And for now I am going to stop because I am supposed to study, not keep playing with tea. But I don’t want toooooo…

Hahahaha, like you studying, I should definitely be working on my Monday presentation, not perusing Steepster… especially since I’m headed out of town at 8am tomorrow (Sat.) morning for a day and a half… Blaaaaah!

Also, glad you like this one! I think I’m ordering it as part of the budset sampler shortly.
