drank Long Jing by TeaSpring
13 tasting notes

This was my last of this tea. I used slightly fewer leaves, with a longer brew time. Although today’s infusions came out a little less flavorful than previous ones, this is still quite good.

The “old cut grass”-ness is less prominent today; instead, there’s a hint of honey, particularly in the first few infusions. It also has a stronger aftertaste — a pleasant, mouth-drying astringency. I’d buy this again.

User experience guy and web developer. I started drinking loose-leaf tea in 2005, and grew to love the lighter, smoother styles of tea.

I’m really more of an “OolongTeaSteve”, but “GreenTeaSteve” sounds better. :-) I’m also into craft beer, wine, & dark chocolate.
