From the Unflavored TTB.
Prepared with a test tube steeper.
Dry leaf aroma is vegetal and salty. Wet leaf aroma has notes of fresh beans, spinach and Brussels sprouts. The liquor is pale green and medium-bodied, and tastes of beans and snow peas, simultaneously bitter and sweet. At first the texture is clear but slowly becomes creamy.
The tea didn’t survive past the third infusion, after which it tasted stale. The Laoshan greens I’ve had before were able to go up to six, but I suppose this one doesn’t travel very well for long. Regardless, I chose to rate, keeping the tea’s potentiality in mind.
I found the most enjoyable part of drinking this tea, actually, was watching the leaves in the test tube steeper while they were being steeped. They looked alive as if they were never dried. Also, after the first infusion the color changed from minty green to fresh garden green, the color of asparagus.
