The other half of todays review, the second offering from this month’s white 2 tea club. This is the 2017 lincang green tea, made from the same leaves the puerh, but processed as a gree tea.

This is an interesting green tea as it has some different flavors from what you would normally associate with a green tea. To start with this was done in a 75ml gaiwan and with 185 degree water. Now this is very slightly higher than he recommended which was about 180, but my kettle doesnt have a 180, so I figured a teeny bit higher would be better.

I skipped the wash and the tea is really clean and opens fairly fast, i didnt feel a need for it, I got a very clear pale liquor similar to the puerh. Though instead of that floral pop I got from the puerh, I got a nutty , almost almond like aroma, and cut grass, very similar to the puerh.

Tasting the first infusion I get nutty, astringent, floral, grass and almonds. Not quite as fruity or sweet as the other tea. But smooth and a slight cooling on the back of the tongue, there is some astrigency that I got in the later steepings right up front. But mostly what I get is intense almond flavor as well as another nutty type flavor that I cant quite put my finger on.

The second steeping produces a bit different flavor,, now I get the cooling sensation a bit more strongly as well as a bit more astringency and lightly into bitterness, but its still really light and refreshing and the nutty flavors are still staying prominent.

Third steeping is much like second and pretty much all the same flavors and aroma’s. The tea seems fairly consistent along the flavor profile as its steeped out. There is another flavor there now, that I cant quite identify.. citrus maybe but not quite…

I figure this will steep out a few more times. Im really impressed by how this tea tastes and how fresh it tastes. It really makes a difference to start on greens right at the beginning of the year when they are freshest.

Highly recommended!
