Having never been to China I can’t attest to whether or not this truly tastes of Longan berries, but I can attest to the fact that it is quite tasty.
It smells very floral (the smell of longan, I reckon), and it tastes sweet yet balanced. Also, the unfurled leaves are far larger than many black teas that I’ve encountered. Overall I’m happy I have 4oz. of this to work through.
