OK was some of the best Lung Ching I have ever had at the cheapest price I have ever paid for it! First of all, I was hesitant to order 4 ounces of a tea I hadn’t tasted but having read in Heiss’ new book that this was a reputable company, I got 1/4 pound each of four different Chinese green teas. Dry leaf smells like a classic Lung Ching…toasty goodness! The leaves were larger than most Dragon Well I’ve tried before so I added an extra teaspoon to about 10 ounces water at 175F. Brews golden and smells delicious. Taste is toasty-almost yeasty breadish with a nutty background. I can’t wait to try the second steep. Second was not quite as flavorful as the first — having been spoiled by oolongs lately, I have to remember the greens don’t last as long. :( Oh well, at the price of $2.25 an ounce, two steeps is good. I like that all the teas came in resealable containers too because presently, all our Teavana containers are full.
