I could start a religion to this tea. Specifically, the second steeping of this tea. So far, I’ve only been brewing it western style but I’m excited to try a gongfu session with it now that I’ve bought some more. This is a really delicious tea with a really amazing, lingering mouthfeel. It’s very velvety, warm, and just takes over your whole mouth.

The tea is naturally sweet with just a touch of ginseng (it’s worth noting that it was roasted with ginseng, and doesn’t have actual ginseng in it). I don’t really taste fruit in this, but everything else described by the company is present. It’s really one of my favorite teas through all its infusions, and even retains its nuances when cold. (If I get through three or fewer infusions in a night, I usually throw some hot water in with the leaves and pop the whole thing into the fridge for an indefinite amount of time).

Beautiful astringency with fresh grassy notes and nutty, toasted finish. If brewed with colloer water it really brings out the umami and freshness of the leaf. A beautiful example of Long Jing.
