I just received another lovely package of samples from Teavivre, and decided to try this one first. I do not think I’ve ever had this varietal before, so I’m looking forward to it!

First thoughts on opening the package – it’s super fresh smelling, and leaves are small and curly.
First sip- this tastes like Laoshan green! Very soy beany and buttery. This tea has a favorite note for me- sesame seed oil. This tea is delicious! I followed Teavivre’s recommendation of 3 minutes, and I think that may be too long. It was a little bitter towards the end.
The second steep of 4 minutes is very different from the first. Not nearly a s sweet, with a great deal of nuttiness. I prefer the first steep. I will try it with a shorter steep next time.

It’s hard to believe, but only six months ago, I had never even heard of Lu Shan Yun Wu. Thanks to Teavivre, I made the happy acquaintance of this tea, and now we shall be together for an entire 100 gram bag. I was craving this tea yesterday, and again today! My epiphany of yesterday (it was not possible to write tasting notes because of server problems) was that if Long Jing and Mao Feng mated, their progeny would be adorable little Lu Shan Yun Wu coils!

Seriously, this tea offers the best of both worlds: buttery and silken and chestnutty, but also green and fresh. I let today’s two-glass tetsubin oversteep a bit and determined that a longer steep moves the liquor closer to Mao Feng, while a shorter steep yields a very faint and gentle brew. So glad that I gave this tea a second try a while back, when I had understeeped and underleafed.

The more high-quality, loose-leaf tea I drink, the more I become convinced that brewing parameters are key to the outcome! Provided, of course, that the product is good, which this one certainly is. The dried tea is not only fragrant and fresh but also beautiful to behold.

Sounds delicious! Right up my alley.

Ubacat: it’s very good. It did take me a while to figure it out, but now this is a serious lunchtime contender. It’s hard to believe now, looking back, that the only green tea I drank consistently in the past was sencha!
