Not sure if this listing is exactly the same as the tea I have, which is ZG68: Organic Green Lu’An Melon Seed. But I did not see any other Lu’Ans on Upton’s site.
I’ve been wanting to try this particular type of tea for a while now. Steeped via regular infuser mug method.
I did not keep a close eye on the time so I was a bit worried about this one. After smelling the wet leaf I do find it very vegetal, sweet and almost spinach like. My cup is a light greenish-gold. So far I am liking this. Yes, it is vegetal, almost slightly grassy with some similarities to Japanese green tea. There is a pleasant nuttiness about this tea and it does have more sweetness in the finish than a lot of other Chinese green teas which make feel like I’m drinking boiled bok choy. It also seems very clean, organic a +.
If dragonwell and sencha gave birth, would this be their love child? I’m not sure but this was a lovely morning tea! I’d consider buying this again as a basic, everyday green tea.
