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.

I was looking forward to my first experience of the Teavivre Lu Shan Yun Wu, my second encounter with this particular green tea. The crispy, wiry leaves are a beautiful tealish-dark slate color, and to my surprise, they smell like a fresh-baked pastry!

I brewed up a large pot, and the first glass was delicious. I drank it alongside toasted English muffins slathered with butter. A very harmonious pairing!

Unfortunately, I discovered upon pouring the next glass that I had not properly prepared my new tetsubin (just arrived today). I had run a bunch of hot water through it, followed by boiling water, but I did follow the instructions and wipe it dry. As a result, after the first glass the tea still in the pot began leeching off the residual black enamel, turning the liquor a somewhat scary brownish gray color. Naturally I dumped the rest of this pot. However, since I used the deep infuser basket, this afternoon I am going to try a second infusion of the already infused leaves, which smell very fragrant and full of potential..

If that doesn’t work, I am relieved that Angel graced me with a second generous sample of this tea, so I’ll be able to brew up a large pot again in the not-too-distant future.

A propos of tetsubin: I have several, in various sizes. I realize that some people complain about the “made in China” variety, but I have not noticed a huge difference in quality between the Unity teapots (distributed by Old Dutch), and the ones made in Japan. The Unity tetsubin are FDA certified lead free, so I am assuming that even if I drank some of the black enamel coating today, it did not poison me. Well, let’s hope not!

No rating yet… but the first glass of this Lu Shan Yun Wu from Teavivre was excellent!


second infusion: This worked fine with a resultant brighter yellow liquor and full flavor. I poured all of the glasses out of the tetsubin just to make sure that the same problem would occur. So now my new tetsubin appears finally to be clean and I’ll be able to enjoy the first infusion of this tea again in the not-too-distant future….
