Default Grotty GuangDong green

This is a continuation of my posts on 'grotty' greens. I just
renoticed it because of my recent post on GuangDong black tea. I also
mentioned it in passing on another post. This one is GuangDong green
almost on the opposite side of the black spectrum. GuangDong is known
for its broadleaf teas like Dan Cong which comes from a tree. You can
see that in the fermented version. The green version looks like it
comes from a bush and not a tree. The leaf looks serrated. I was
hoping for a green broadleaf to compliment the oolong and black. It
is a harsh brew which fades quickly after first infusion. The
infusion is a little less murky than the other grotty greens I
mentioned. The aftertaste isnt that harsh. I would describe this
grotty green as the least objectionable so far but not by much. It is
everything one would think a nutritious green tea can provide in one
cup. If you drink green tea for health this should fit the bill. It
taste like a mineral supplement. It is not that easy to find because
no demand perse. If you do it should be cheap enough.
