From Verdant Tea

“A silky sweet experimental crop with Laoshan’s signiture sugar snap pea flavor and the crispness of White Tea.”

After decades of innovation and working to perfect their green tea, the village of Laoshan has entered a golden age of diversity in their tea offerings. Just a year ago, our friends, the He family, started making black tea as an experimental crop, improving with each harvest. This black tea has quickly become our most popular offering. Now, for the first time, Laoshan White tea is available.

By steaming the tea leaves lightly after picking instead of allowing them to wilt in bamboo baskets and oxidize, a kind of white tea is produced. This processing difference creates an intriguing difference in taste. While Laoshan Green is creamy and savory like green beans, the Laoshan white is in a different league.

The predominant texture is extremely silky on the sides of the tongue with a slightly tingling texture on the tip of the tongue. All together it creates a crisp and fresh sensation. The flavor still references the signature green bean quality of Laoshan, but moves towards a sugar-snap pea flavor, and very light notes of clover honey. The silkiness of the texture creates the sensation of chilled almond milk with vanilla.

This is pretty nice. I’m trying to get used to teas that are more green and vegetal. I am also getting through a lot of teas I should have brewed sooner. I hope they bring this one back again, although I probably still wouldn’t order too much. There’s spinach in steepings 3 & 4.

This is currently my favorite unflavored (camellia sinensis only) white tea.

I tried this tea iced recently and I think I like it even better than hot. It didn’t lose as much character when iced as most of the iced teas I’ve tried.

To ice the tea, I cold steeped it in the refrigerator and used about 8 oz of tea for 24 oz of water at first. I then diluted slowly diluted the tea as needed when drinking and resteeping. I got between 60 and 80 oz of refreshing iced tea out of the leaves over 3 days by this cold steeping method.

Appearance & aroma of dry leaves:
long shaped, green wirey & white buds mixed in. Light vegetal aroma smells like green tea.
Appearance & aroma of wet leaves:
Very bright green colour young, leaves and little buds if any smells like a nutty japanese green similar aroma to Mae-da En sencha possibly.
Colour of liquor:
Very pale green not much of a change throughout 4 steeps.
1st infusion Brewed in a 4 ounce gaiwan with 3.5 grams of tea 20 secs:
Light buttery vegetal flavour not bitter or astringent at all, don’t know what a snap pea is but this definitely reminds me of a snow pea. So Duckler was spot on for that one.
2nd infusion: 27 seconds
Slightly cloudly liquor with strong vegetal flavour very light & slightly astringent & bitter but in a positive usual way you expect from a green, little weird for a white
