As far as Chinese Greens go this is a pretty solid one, though not the best I’ve had. A local tea merchant in my area sells one I enjoy a lot more but this one will do in a pinch. A bit expensive for what it is but definitely not bad. It is a mild green tea with a chestnut note. The grassiness it offers is almost pungent and I can almost taste it with my nose (hopefully that makes some sense).
Green tea from the Chinese village of Dragon Well (Lung Ching in local parlance). Dragon Well tea has a distinguished shape. Its leaves are broad and flat, a result of laborious drying. There is something to show for this hard work: Dragon Well tea is refreshingly smooth, sweet and delicate, among the very best of Chinese greens. Our ‘Dragon Well Requiem’ is a First Grade version of this truly sublime tea.
