From Thistea

Our Classic Laoshan green tea is small leaf, tippy (but without silver hairs) and tightly rolled, but not compressed like a Tie Guan Yin. The varietal grown is Long Jing #43 and as such the tea from Laoshan shares it character. The Classic Laoshan taste is thick, pungent, savory and vegetal. It’s perhaps slightly less sweet than the first flush Imperial Grade, having slightly larger and thicker leaves gives this tea a more robust flavor.

Receiving a sample of this tea from ThisTea (thank you!) was kind of cheating, as this variety is a tried and true favorite of mine.  Laoshan Green is the green of my dreams.  It’s always nice to try a fresh harvest though.   The leaves here might look slightly brighter neon yellow green than I’m accustomed to seeing from Laoshan.  The flavor is naturally sweet to the point of seeming like sugar was added, also nutty, vegetal yet fruity at the same time, buttery.  It’s just an explosion of various flavors and exactly why I LOVE Laoshan green.  I would never tire of it.   I have been steeping it a variety of ways and it never fails.  Second steeps are essential.  Laoshan is only the most interesting unique flavor profile of any green tea I have tried.
