Which green teas have more delicate flavor?

by MTHall720 » Sep 25th 17 1:51 pm

I trying to find a type of green tea that has little to no grassy tones, with a hint of sweetness. Is there a mild green which approaches white tea or yellow tea in terms of light flavor?

I and my friend Vee (from Tea-Village) just enjoyed 10 rounds of one such tea. Delicious and just keeps going. I prepare it Western style using hardly any leaves for a few infusions. Vee more than doubled the leaves but got many, many infusions. Long steeping time can give some body and mouthfeel but not any deep bitterness. This tea remained fresh and light. If you don't find any other before mid-October, PM me for details. I am traveling now and don't have my notes, only the tea with a code for my notebook on the tin that the tea is in.

Crystal White Long Jing Green Tea Comes to mind from TeaHabitat. It has an elegant sweet pea umami delicate liquor. I posted here about it; viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14327&start=3525

Thanks very much. Will PM you when home if I haven't tracked one down then.
