My first loose-leaf experience from Mighty Leaf, ML Jade Organic is a quite decent Long JIng. To be honest, I did not realize that this was going to be a dragonwell—usually that is mentioned in the name—but I am happy with this organic tea.
The dried leaves are of all different shapes and sizes, not uniform as are many of the other Long Jings. The leaves are definitely flat, but they range in length and width. There are lots of large leaves but also some smaller pieces, so it’s possible that some of them broke while jostling about in the tin. I really like the sleek cylindrical tin, by the way, and will probably buy envelopes to refill it in the future.
So, yes, the tea is good. The liquor is golden veering very pale green, and the flavor is textbook Long Jing. Very smooth and buttery with a chestnut-like taste. I’ll definitely be reinfusing the wet leaves as they are still very fragrant. Depending on how long they last, I might also but a third infusion into the fridge for decaf iced green tea tomorrow.
