Ah, good old reliable Laoshan tea. My default Chinese green tea because it’s always delicious and satisfying.
Familiar but intensely sweet aromas of edamame, fennel, and snap pea waft out upon opening the pouch. Creamed spinach appears as its placed in a heated shibo. The aromas come through nicely in the taste along with a toasted oats. This is followed by notes of green bean, sweet pea, and lemongrass in resteeps.
Although last year’s harvest had a little more oomph, this years Laoshan green tea once again exhibits many of the excellent qualities I love about this tea. A perennial buy for sure.
