Default what is this white residue/dust in the tea liquor?

have a yunnan green, and leaf leaves behind an opaque liquor, with
many tiny white flakes & dust floating around.
most of it settles after 1 hour but liquor is still opaque...
maybe its pollen dust? (i hope)

It's more likely the little white hairs from the leaves. That is a good
sign.

How much has the leaves unfurl? If the leaves are fully opened, they
can't be that young ...

That looks very much like a green mao feng I had from Yunnan Sourcing.
This was a thicker, tougher leaf and not small buds, very similar to
yours.
You may want to gently, quickly wash the leaves or use a luke warm
water.

Not small, perhaps - to be expected if it's the Yunnan large leaf
varietal - but buds nonetheless. You would expect the buds to have
opened after three steeps, after all. If you look carefully, the tips
are there in the image.

Yes, indeed. Old eyes.
I happen to absolutely LOVE this tea.
I bought some from Scott earlier in the year and have gifted it to
every dear friend, as well.
It's got a wonderful sweetness, not vegetal and somewhat floral.
It's resilient and holds up to multiple steepings very easily.
Nice to know someone else is savoring this tea!

thats exactly the one


BTW, I use cooler water on this one and let it steep longer. Seems to
bring out the flowery fruitiness.
