From Verdant Tea

After decades of innovation and working to perfect their green tea, the village of Laoshan has entered a golden age of diversity in their tea offerings. Just a year ago, our friends, the He family, started making black tea as an experimental crop, improving with each harvest. This black tea has quickly become our most popular offering. Now, for the first time, Laoshan White tea is available.

By steaming the tea leaves lightly after picking instead of allowing them to wilt in bamboo baskets and oxidize, a kind of white tea is produced. This processing difference creates an intriguing difference in taste. While Laoshan Green is creamy and savory like green beans, the Laoshan white is in a different league.

The predominant texture is extremely silky on the sides of the tongue with a slightly tingling texture on the tip of the tongue. All together it creates a crisp and fresh sensation. The flavor still references the signature green bean quality of Laoshan, but moves towards a sugar-snap pea flavor, and very light notes of clover honey. The silkiness of the texture creates the sensation of chilled almond milk with vanilla.

Theresa is a mean boss, but I know she is only doing her job.
We’ve been sitting in my office for hours, working on the membership roster & google group list for the Gateway St. Louis chapter of the America Harp Society. I’m chapter president (sounds important, but it’s not. Nobody else wants the job). I’ve been working on this since last Thursday, went I sent emails to every single person on either list, requesting a response to verify their contact info, confirm that they are still interested in being members, etc. I also attached dues forms, reminded them we have a tea party & adult recital this sunday, etc.
The old roster is OLD, & includes people who have passed away, moved away, & students who no longer play the harp. It’s a job I started on a year ago, got sidetracked, & never finished.

So far about 30% of the people have responded!

Meanwhile, I’ve been sipping this tea. It was sent to me some time ago as a sample in one of my Verdant Orders. It’s a nice treat, and a pleasant contrast to the Black Pearl I was drinking early. It’s creamy almond milk & tender spring greens. Lightly sweet & fresh, an invitation to Spring in a Cup!

Bonnie

This one makes me tea drunk!

Tealizzy

A tea party and a recital! Too bad I don’t play the harp! (I actually played the flute for 16 years, but have fell out of practice with a full time job). Flute and harp sound awesome together, btw!

Terri HarpLady

Lizzy, they do sound awesome together! I have several flute player friends that I play with on occasion. In fact, that reminds me, I have a bride that wants flute, harp, & cello. I need to call some people & set that up!

Bonnie

Need a tea drunk piano player?

Terri HarpLady

Sure, Bonnie, what the hell!
BTW, Tony & I were talking about planning our trip to visit his son. We still aren’t sure when we’re coming, but once I know, I’ll be sure & tell you! We’re gonna have a tea party together! :)
Me, you, Ms Theresa, Little Terri, & maybe even Tony!

Bonnie

Yeah! That will be great!

Sil

Edit: is there any difference between this and the "Laoshan White? I’m putting my note under this name as that’s what it says on the sticker..

I ripped open my sample of this to have as a celebration tea for making it back to University town and being reunited with my never-before-used “blooming teapot” (and also, my cool roommate).

The first few steeps were tinged with seaweed greenery, and I was missing my Yunnan White Jasmine dearly at this stage. It felt like I was drinking an extremely mild, vegetal green.

My later steeps are more to my liking; “silky”, “clover honey”, and “almond milk” are spot on. Nom nom nom. Much more like the creamy white I was craving, although the vegetal elements are still apparent (and much appreciated). I think this is around my sixth to eighth infusion but I could be mistaken.

This was a beautiful choice to “baptize” my small pot in; the leaves are long, slender, and stringy. I know my tasting experiences are limited but I’ve never had a white tea that tasted quite like this.

Ze_Teamaker

Totally adding to my new words to use from now on list….

Bonnie

CrowKettle

It took me many a few moments to realize that magnicified is not located in the dictionary. It should be.

The flavor of this reminds me of sweeter, smoother green beans. It’s delicious! It’s creamier the more you sip it. It’s savory. It’s semi brothy. It’s sweet and mouth-watering. YUMMY!

Stephanie

I will have to try this one some day, since I have loved all the Laoshan teas so far! :)

Chelle

Sounds delicious! Going to have to try too.

Starfevre

I appreciate the opportunity to try Immortal Springs Laoshan White as a sample with my order. I prepared it as advised on Verdant’s website and enjoyed 6 steepings. It may have been possible to get more. I would agree with the product notes which describe this as silky with honey and sugar snap-pea flavors. The taste is sweet and vegetative, reminding me somewhat of some green teas I have had. There is no bitterness whatsoever. If you are a white tea fan, take advantage of the fact that it is currently on clearance. I think you will enjoy it a lot.

I’m sitting at a picnic table in front of a small cottage in Cape Cod. The wind is gently dancing across the leaves of the trees. A car occasionally drives by. Its 3:00 in the afternoon and the only sounds I hear are the keys on my keyboard, the wind softly coasting across my face, and the crickets talking to each other in the grass.

I usually abhor silence. It makes me uncomfortable. Silence between two people, to me, is the signal that something is wrong or about to be.

This silence, though. I haven’t heard this in a long time. It is therapeutic. Tea me.

I’m with five other people in this small cottage in Dennis. I have brought a lot of tea with me. They are all excited to try to teas and have me talk about them. We got in last night and the first thing we did when we were all up was to make some Sencha, Yu Lu Yan Cha Black and Autumn Harvest Green.

I love the colors of Verdant’s teas. I don’t know why they look the way they do or how but I think they are the most beautiful looking tea colors I’ve ever seen or drank. This is so lightly colored that its hard to describe. Its barely green and has a tint of yellow. Its damn gorgeous.

The mouthfeel is a little thin but it leaves a smoothness on my tongue. Beany, creamy. Slightly nutty. Crisp. It sounds like I’m reading off the description page but I’m not. Things are so pronounced yet so delicate its hard to talk about how soft these flavors are but how damn good they taste. I know I don’t write the best reviews but if you made it this far: buy Verdant. This stuff will change the way you taste the world.

The rest of the crew went shopping. I’ll just sit here until they come back, listen to the crickets, the wind, the ocean whispering across the way. I’ll just sit here and sip.

I needed this.

Thank you, conaughtyco. I loved this review, and will absolutely be passing your sentiments along to the He Family in Laoshan.

Bonnie

You made me smile. For those who have said, “It’s all hype” they don’t know what they’re talking about! I completely agree with you. I was hit smack in the face with the same ‘change the way you taste the world’ experience almost two years ago.
