LoL OK 3 new teas (tea bags to be precise) again. This time they came as a gift from a cousin who lives in Germany. There comes something good out of annoying people with tea stories after all ;) For me at least. I’m seriously starting to be overcrowded with tea. Weird feeling.

Ya and i got 3 packages on the post office: one is Adagio teas, one should be an awesome t shirt. No idea what the third one is…

Back to the tea.
Leaves smell like fresh cut grass or something. Very nice real smell.
Color is yellow. Tea itself smells very herbal but different than dry leaves. Cant remember what it reminds me of.
Leaves are even bigger than white one from this morning. Quite bigger:

Hmmm is that weird smell jasmine? Would be easier to tell if i spoke German better :D It’s a very specific herbal taste, quite strong, and really not bad. Weird for me tho.
I Googled an english description:
China Lung Ching – Widely known as “Dragon Well,” Lung Ching is one of China’s “Ten Famous Teas” eagerly awaited each March and April. Meticulously plucked, withered and pan-fired to perfection, this premium grade tea is a masterful achievement of the balance between bitter and sweet. A sunshine yellow infusion presents contrast. Roasted chestnut resounds and bitter green undertones give way to a softer, sweeter hint of vanilla.

I’m getting the softness. Wouldn’t call it vanilla but ya i get what they meant. And it really is sweet. Quite.

So basically i like it but still find it weird. Or my taste buds do. They will get used to it soon. They always do. I can see this becoming one of those teas that give me cravings…

ROFL! I clicked on the first pic and squeeled “fishie teacups!” The other pic I just smiled, and then I read your little note and laughed :D I came close to purchasing a gaiwan that has fishies on it, but I couldn’t tell if they were in the bottom of the cup so I passed it over (plus the fishies weren’t as cute as yours). Those cups just make me happy :)

http://bit.ly/baOOuT there you go. it’s an ebay store and everything for me went smooth. they packed it well and it arrived like 3-4 weeks after ordering. b4 ordering i asked them what if they break in transport and they said they send new ones. so well good feedback from me. and you know how much i love them. they cost but i don’t regret at all ;) (i was trying to resist not buying them but didn’t manage lol, i took the first occasion to gift myself – that was my name-day)

Rabs

That’s awesome! I need to wait for my mid-month paycheck, but they’re sooo gonna be mine mwhahahahaaaa! But I will still love seeing them in your photos. :) I’m also really glad to know that you had a good experience with that store. They have a few gaiwans I was eyeballing but hadn’t heard anything about them as a company on Steepster or the like. Thank you so very much! :D

Rabs

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…

Rating system (i’ll try to use it from now on):
0-20 sorry, can’t do it. ewwy
20-50 i’ll drink it if i have to, i f not no ty
50-70 its not bad, quite drinkable
70-85 i like it, might buy more
