I did a bunch of gongfu steeps of this one in my gaiwan but combined them into one big glass. It was essentially the same tea:water ratio, but instead of one long steep it was multiple 10 second steeps, so it would be interesting to know how it would taste different from a western steep of it. But of course teas like this seem to beg to be short steeped, even if you are just going to combine them.

This was fresh and lovely. Green, sweet, like sugar snap peas. I rarely crave a straight green, but I like having them around. Obviously this is not one I will keep around longterm, but it is a pleasure to drink.

The month is almost over & I’m finally drinking this one.
The flavor is SO green! I went with the test tube steeper, short steepings, & it’s so rich & full it reminds me of Matcha!

i loved this tea…..

Pardon my newbie ignorance. Can you please explain to me the “test tube steeper”? I’ve seen it mentioned in tasting notes but haven’t run across one (that I remember) on any of the sites. Where did you get it?

Here’s the link Dexter

I love this thing! It is my favorite mode for steeping green teas. They are out of stock right now.

Thank you. Will have to keep a watch out to see if they restock. Looks unusual.

Hi Dexter. If verdant doesn’t restock you might want to check out aliexpress retailers carry something similar starting around 11USD. Just make sure that they are charging per complete set and not per piece and that you check out the shipping costs when comparing retailers.

JustJames

terri! what an awesome link…. that’s a great device!

Thanks for the advice yyz. Will take a look.

Now this green came as a surprise.
The first thing i noticed was the strong aromatic smell, this tea is superfresh. And the small size of the leaf.

6g / 200ml glaspot
Three infusions
1m/2m/3m @ 80C

I must say the flavour was a surprise. Loads of spinach and a a superb freshness.
I put the flavour as almost identical to a good quality sencha! Wierd considering senchas are steamed. Maybe its the fact that its still so fresh?
As a fan of sencha i am very pleased :)

I still haven’t tried this one, or the other 2 reserve teas for this month yet. Sounds wonderful!

Bonnie I’m allergic to beans,so tea like this is a real treat for me!

Yep, top notch. I instantly noticed the smell is the most intense and savory of all the laoshan greens. The taste is savory, sweet and with nice vegetal notes, but not like your usual green teas.
