Tea Review: Enshi Yu Lu Jade Dewdrops (Modern Steep)

Enshi Yu Lu Jade Dewdrops
Modern Steep
Type: Green
Origin: China
Product Description:
This organic green tea is truly unique in the world of modern Chinese teas as it is steamed immediately following harvest preserving its natural spring picked profile.  It is complex with vegetal notes, light umami and lingering sweetness.
Temperature: 175°
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaf aroma is nutty and green.

The light yellow infusion has a rich and savory, buttery and nutty aroma with a taste of nuts and green vegetables.  

This tea remained flavorful throughout three infusions with the promise of more.  While Modern Steep is no longer in business at the time of this review, there should be other sources for this particular steamed green tea and it's well worth finding.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
