From Verdant Tea

Fo Shou, or “Buddha’s Hand,” varietal has uniquely large, long beautiful leaves. This reserve harvest is a selection of fine early spring leaves cultivated in the Li Family tea garden along the Longchuan gorge within the Wuyi Ecological Preserve. Each leaf is carefully hand-picked and finished in bamboo baskets over wood embers. Fo Shou varietal is particularly juicy and full of temple-like incense aromatics. The reserve harvest shows off the best of the varietal while pairing the Fo Shou profile with the cooling tingling ‘yun’ sensation that only the finest teas evoke.

So I didn’t take tasting notes because I used this tea to fuel me through finishing a university application due tonight. But dang is this a well-balanced yancha. Deep red liquor, aromas, flavors, mouthfeel, returning sweetness, energy all kind of made for the perfect beverage to calm myself down and tell a bunch of strangers why they should accept me into their program. If you want a good idea of the flavors, check out eastkyteaguy’s and oceanica’s reviews for the 2016 harvest, though this 2017 is a bit different. I remember noticing a pronounced thickness, too, which I’ve never experienced in yancha.

Oh, I even talked about tea on my application because the school I applied to tonight, UC Davis, has a program called the Global Tea Initiative that I’m interested in contributing to. Check it out: https://globaltea.ucdavis.edu/

I really dug this Reserve Fo Shou and want more. It’s definitely the smoothest wuyi oolong sample I ordered from Verdant and it’s definitely out of my price range :( but I’ll be on the lookout for this cultivar in the future. (I also enjoyed Verdant’s regular Fo Shou.)

Good luck with the application!
