Prepared in a huge glass gaiwan so I could see the leaves swirl. So pretty. At first I was getting blah washwater brews because I was so afraid of scorching the leaves that I used lower temperatures. But using water near 190F actually tastes a lot better. Yum.
Leaving the ‘root’, I was able to get two more infusions.

Must try it chilled some time. I’m quite happy with this. Of course, I can’t compare it to the more expensive Nonpareil grade, but to my untrained palate this mid-level Superfine tastes pretty good. (and quite a lot better than my sampler from Adagio. Good thing I didn’t give up on Dragonwell so soon.)

After I tasted the other more expensive LongJing from Life in Teacup, I revisited this tea I got earlier this year from Dragon Teahouse’s eBay store. I remember this LongJing is a lot cheaper. In tasting, this tea is lighter in taste compared to LiT’s Longjing. But I still tasted the roasty aroma. Maybe due to the lighter taste, the astringency was lower too. Considering the price and my tea budget, I most likely would go with this tea. But the other LongJing is definitely better, when I get a raise.
