Grassy and vegetal, but not bitter (hooray I finally managed to to oversteep/scorch a green tea!). A light, clean, healthy-tasting cup of tea for a morning after indulging in wine and sweets last night. Seems ever so slightly astringent up front, but slightly sweet on the finish. I’m still learning about the nuances of loose green tea, but glad I have this one in my cupboard for the sake of variety.
Qing Ming Dragonwell
Dragonwell Qing Ming Superb
LUNG CHING QING MING – Exquisite. Produced before the Qing Ming (Ching Ming) festival. One of China’s “10 famous teas”, Dragon Well (Lung Jing) green tea has been prized since the Tang Dynasty for its jade green color, mellow taste, floral aroma and flat, shiny leaves. This handcrafted, pan-fired tea is refreshing and cooling with a nutty flavor reminiscent of roasted chestnuts and a sweet aftertaste. A revitalizing all-day tea or a digestive after a heavy meal. Brewing Recommendation: Use 1 teaspoon per 6 oz cup. Heat water until steaming gently (about 160º F). Steep 2 – 3 minutes. Good for multiple infusions.
