Superior Long Jing (Dragon Well)
Long Jing is one of China’s most famous and best-loved green teas but comes in many grades and it’s not uncommon for inferior teas can be passed off as Long Jing. This exceptional (and authentic) Long Jing is an outstanding example of a famous classic. Made from the first flush of small spring leaves, picked young and skilfully pressed by hand in a hot, dry wok, it produces a bright, lively tea with a bright, clear liquor. Brew it with care and appreciate several quick infusions as the character evolves from a fresh and sweetly assertive green bean flavour to a soft, sweet liquor with a long, pleasing aftertaste.
