This is the priciest tea I’ve ever drank. I was lucky enough to try this tea this afternoon in a tea gathering with friends. The tea broth was clear, slightly yellowish green. The flavor was wonderful. It tasted roasty, like half roasted nuts or peanuts. There is some astringency. But based on my experience with LongJing, I think they all have some astringency to some degree. The tea left a mouth watering, sweet-like aftertaste. Overall this is a good tea. But after I check the price for this tea tonight, I think it’s a bit expensive. But what do I know about tea pricing! Honestly, I would give this tea a higher rating if I didn’t check the price.
