From Verdant Tea

The He Family’s classic spinrg harvest is picked in May, as soon as the fields’ protective greenhouse winter coverings are removed for the year. The result is rich, fresh flavor full of Laoshan’s famous sweet vegetal-savory soy bean flavor aroma. The He family’s signature green tea is fed by mountain spring water, picked by hand, and cultivated sustainably using traditional chemical-free farming techniques. The mature plants that survived last years harsh winter and early spring bring a super sweet and unique mineral quality to this 2017 spring harvest.

Personally not a fan of this one. Way too grassy/vegetal for my liking. Excellent company though! They have some amazing tea offerings.

5g tea, 6 oz water, 175. 10 second 1st steep, +5 seconds following

Dry leaves have strong, fresh, but toasty green scent – reminds me of homemade kale chips. 1st steep – very sweet vegetal smell, but still with toasty note like kale chips or roasted green vegetables; taste is savory, smooth, a little buttery. 2nd steep similar, but ends with touch of dryness. 3rd steep is less roast-y so sweetness stands out more, a bit more dryness & touch of astringency at end. [Stopped after 3rd, set leaves on tea towel for later.]

Update: After gongfu tastings (3 steepings), placed leaves in 12 oz water & refrigerated overnight. Iced was good, refreshing, with pleasant vegetable flavor. Toasty notes gone, though whether from the original steepings or from being iced, not sure.
