From Verdant Tea

Classic Laoshan Bilochun is picked after the He Family removes the protective greenhouse coverings from their tea at the end of the cold season. This season’s bitter cold winter and sudden summer heat drastically shortened the harvest season and brought about the lowest yield in a generation, but the result is one of the sweetest, richest pickings ever. The hand-twisting and slow finishing process of bilochun is Mr. He’s personal favorite, making this his own daily go-to tea. Hand-processing brings out even thicker texture and sweeter creamier flavors than classic Laoshan Green.

This is the least impressive of all the Laoshan greens from Verdant’s lineup that I’ve tried so far. That’s not to say it’s a bad tea, just underwhelming compared to low cost plain old Laoshan green tea. In fact with few exceptions, most Laoshan green tea variants and reserve/imperial grade teas have not lived up to the hype in my experience.

The tea begins with some fruity and soybean notes and then transitions into toasted oats/grains and a cilantro-like herbaceous before settling into a green bean flavor. A bit drying in the mouth but not astringent. Overall, this is more savory than regular Laoshan green tea, nuttier, and doesn’t resteep well past the 3rd infusion.
