Thanks for sending this along, Nicole! I was hoping this would be like Laoshan Green (my favorite) and it is a little like it, though this is a yellow tea. The leaves look more like feathery crumbles that are breaking apart than the sturdy and silky coiled Laoshan leaves. But the nutty flavor from my favorite green teas is there. It’s also fairly fruity and sweet. A teaspoon and a half might be a little too much, but it didn’t ruin the flavor with too much astringency.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 tsp // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 30 min a.b. // 2 min
