Warm, buttery aroma on an undertone of lightly toasted fresh cereal and peas, accented with sea salt and light woody spice. Lively body with a good weight and silky to velvety tactility. Malty savoriness in very good length with light bites of salt, chocolate and cinnamon, changing to sweet and refreshing.
Long-jing Spring Equinox
To acquire really fine Long-jing in rapidly changing China, we had to search away from tourists infested localities, and yet still faithful to the origin of Hangzhou. In Wu’s farm where the underground water is crisp and the air sweet, our Long-jing master realizes the environment is more important than the convenience; there would be no quality without the traditional respect for Nature. Tea Hong’s Long-jing Spring Equinox might well be used by nobles and mandarins in their tea competition when Emperor Qianlong was still young and flamboyant, and crazy about the tea.
