This is a better than average green tea and is nice for contemplation in the afternoon. I like how the leaves look. Seems to become a little more bitter than one would expect if over steeped.
A green tea for a gray sky.
The brilliant color and aroma of a wet summer forest prepare the mind for the nutty, crisp, and mouth-filling flavor of the first cup. The mind is soothed, the body is warmed. This season’s tea (2011) is really representative of a classic Long Jing with no astringency and just the slightest hint of dryness in the aftertaste.
