This is medium but good quality tea. The first steep was not too impressive, the taste was dull, lacking high notes which define a good tea. Luckily the next steep was much better revealing earthly notes and much desired depth. I do realize that a high quality Big Robe is hard to find. In particular at a reasonable price. This tea is certainly the best one can find without spending fortune.

Oh, wow! Your tasting note sure has changed since you first made it! I’m glad you eventually found this more enjoyable.

Did you experience this tea’s weird “ringing” or “vibrating” texture in the mouth? That’s one of my favorite parts!

I really recommend making this tea in yixing or a gaiwan, and using a good amount of leaf. This tea can give great complexity, but I find it is impossible to ignore when made gong-fu style.

Hi, yes- this tea needs zisha pot. The earthy, woody notes come forth much faster. Overall I love Verdant teas, the teas are not only different in a positive way and original, but also the service is superb. Laoshan teas green is certainly not easy tea to get to admire.
