Certainly more smokier this time around. The water temp may have been a slightly higher. Nonetheless, it was a great cup of tea. Just what I needed to boost my mind halfway through the day!

Very engaging with it’s lingering essence of fresh cut grass flavor!

Smooth and a surprising cup of escape, that brings me back to some of my fondest childhood summer days.

This may not be for everyone, especially if you find yourself not liking some of the other grassier tasting green teas; however, it is an excellent leaf to have in the collection.

I’m still new to the Lung Ching green leaf(Drangon Well), but am very much a fan thus far.

*One discovery – I may have overheated the water on this pot @ 185°F. It produced a slightly darker brownish amber color after only 3mins steep. I will lower the temp a tad next time.

What a jewel of a tea, when you have the appropriate time needed to best serve this tightly hand-rolled leaf.

I find myself mesmerized by medium to premium quality artisan teas, especially whenever they are so delicately packaged for the pure beauty and entertainment of the audience.

Maybe it’s just the therapeutic qualities of watching these leave unfurl and release their distinctively vegetal, yet great floral notes that I love about this one. *(Not sure, somehow I feel I may need to continue my journey with this one to fully uncover and discover this drawing desire towards this tea:)

This is a very smooth and non-astringent green tea.

It’s also a great tea blended with Golden Jade Green Tea.

Watching leaves unfurl can be very relaxing and therapeutic, the Agony of the Leaves.

Indeed! Although now I feel bad for the leaves the way Tommy put it lol.

My friend gave me a bag of this when I left his place earlier. And, wow. This is exactly what I needed today. (I’ve caught a cold.)

I admit I can’t really taste the chrysanthemum, but the pu-erh’s flavor is amazing. It’s sweet and honeylike, and incredibly smooth. Completely non-astringent or bitter. It’s malty and I know this may sound strange, but buttery. In a good way. Like a warm honey-buttered croissant. It’s going amazingly with my intensely spicy Thai ramen.

I’m going to have to buy a box of this.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec
