What a magical experience! It was my first time tasting a Longjing tea so I can’t really compare it to others but I loved it! It gave me a sensation of home, possibly because it had an aroma of a sweet corn & milk beverage I used to drink in my childhood. The tea is buttery, slightly vegetal & sweet (hits the spot), fresh and nutty. It’s the type of tea that I can drink at any hour of the day. I steeped it for 2.5 min at 70C and for the 2nd infusion, I steeped it for 5 min at 75C. The second infusion felt milder than the first but it was still great!

160 °F / 71 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Fascinated by tea and tea culture worldwide. Like almost every loose leaf tea out there (except for a few Pu-erhs), specially Oolongs from Wuyi, Guandong, Taiwan as well as Longjing and Dianhong teas. My favorite tea really depends on the mood and scenario but I can never resist teas with notes of honey, lychee, melon, peach, plum and/or nutty flavors.

I started my tea journey only a couple of years ago so I’m excited to continue tasting new teas and start reviewing. I would love to swap teas with anyone living in Europe (check out my cupboard and DM me if interested). At the moment, I have great Oolongs, Black Teas and blends.

Looking forward to meeting more crazy tea lovers!
