From Hunan Hongda Tea Co.

Longjing tea or Dragon Well is a famous variety of green tea from Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China where it is produced mostly by hand and has been renowned for its high quality, earning the China Famous Tea title. Longjing is divided into seven grades: Superior, Special, and then 1 down to 5.

Long Jing is often called the national drink of China and is frequently given to visiting heads of state. It is also a favorite tea of today’s top leaders, with a portion of production reserved for government customers.

The loose leaves for this tea look delicious! Bright green and unmistakably long (about 3/4 inch to an inch). The leaves actually remind me of a Japanese bancha in look, but roughly double the length. There are some stems in this tea which produces a dry aroma I find reminiscent of light garlic and butter.

Once brewed the leaves produce a wonderfully light, bright and clear yellow liquor. The brewed aroma is light and smooth with faint vegetal hints.

On the palate the brew is equally smooth and soft. Not as meaty as an oolong, but not thin like a rooibos either. The flavors play lightly on the tongue with almost no astingency. There’s some dryness in the top of the throat and hints of vegetables sauteed in butter.
