Commercial Description

...Picked in the He Family's fields while still covered with two layers of greenhouse protection, this 2017 spring green tea is carefully hand pressed by the family one leaf and bud at a time. The flat pressing process takes a full day of intense labor, and brings out more sweetness and a longer aftertaste...

I didn't try a sample before ordering this one in a 25g bag (my mistake). I was really surprised with how little flavor it had. As with the Spring Laoshan Green and Spring Reserve Laoshan Green, there's a savory profile, though this is more delicate and sweet than the others. But, the notes didn't last for more than a few brews, even when using 2x the amount of tea I normally use. It was really disappointing. I've had tea that's much lower in cost than this which held out for 2-3x as many brews. The notes themselves aren't bad but for almost $0.50 for a 4oz cup? It's really not worth it.
