This was the Spring 2019 version and it’s a little strange for a green tea. Most greens need a bit of time for infusions but this one is better with quick steeps.

3 g, green gaiwan, 80C. I brewed the first infusion for 1 min and tried more steeps but it was so bitter I couldn’t enjoy it. The first steep was the only part that was drinkable and I got edamame and green beans from that.

So I tried a bit more leaf – 3.6g and brewed it under 5 sec. It was very light but no bitterness. Faint edamame. I did 2 more quick infusions under 5 seconds and got floral and creamy notes.

In conclusion, this tea is very different from the Lu Shan Yun Wu from Teavivre. The taste profile is completely different. I wouldn’t even think they were the same tea.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Green Beans

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
