Very engaging with it’s lingering essence of fresh cut grass flavor!

Smooth and a surprising cup of escape, that brings me back to some of my fondest childhood summer days.

This may not be for everyone, especially if you find yourself not liking some of the other grassier tasting green teas; however, it is an excellent leaf to have in the collection.

I’m still new to the Lung Ching green leaf(Drangon Well), but am very much a fan thus far.

*One discovery – I may have overheated the water on this pot @ 185°F. It produced a slightly darker brownish amber color after only 3mins steep. I will lower the temp a tad next time.

I took a chance on this at an international market recently. It was nearly 7 oz. of tea for just $11.00 but it was still well within the expiration date so I thought I would give it a go because I really love Longjing. Well, I guess you get what you pay for sometimes! The title of the tea indicates that it is from the West Lake region which is a good start. The packaging doesn’t appear to be very good with regard to protecting the integrity of the tea though. It is in a basic clear glass jar. The flavor is tastes like “right leaves, right preparation, poor storage”. You get a very muted flavor profile that lacks the pronounced vegetal, nutty essence with a smooth buttery texture that great Chinese Greens often have. When you smell the wet leaves, you have to really struggle to get a familiar DragonWell essence. On the whole, it is not a bad tea and I will finish the jar in time. It’s just that once you have really good Dragowell, it is hard to accept an impostor. On the whole, it is not a bad buy for $11.00 but this really not something I would want to share with someone to show off how great Dragonwell can be.
