From Tea Valley

Among all Long Jing, those harvested from Shi Feng (Lion’s Peak) are considered to be of the highest quality. Sword-like in shape and luscious-green in color, each Long Jing tea leaf looks like a carefully handcrafted art piece. Bright and delicate, the sweet aroma of the tea leaves is most inviting. The Shi Feng Long Jing has a mild-bodied flavor that is succulent and pure. The texture of the tea is exceptionally smooth and the aftertaste is very floral. You will find every aspect of this tea peaceful and relaxing.

The Shi Feng Long Jing is an excellent choice for those who love mild-flavored teas. With a delicate combination of sweetness and floral taste, there is no doubt why the Xihu Long Jing is considered the “Queen of Green Tea.”

The smell of the loose leaf was very pleasant, sweet, and a little floral.
I brewed around 2 oz water to 1 rounded tsp (mabye a bit more) at near boiling for 30 seconds, increasing each steep by 15 seconds each time.

The first infusion was slightly vegetal (it did have a slight sencha-like vegetal taste), but this was quickly overpowered by the nutty, stir-fry-like chestnut flavor. It was quite a unique taste, and when I imagine how “Chinese” tastes (Chinese anything!), it is THIS flavor. It was really good, and if it ended at that it might have weirded me out, since it wasn’t like any tea I’ve had before.

However, the underlying flavor was such a pleasant, rounded sweetness. It wasn’t sharply sweet like the shinchas I’ve had (sugary), but smooth sweet, like a piece of fruit that is just barely ripe, or flowers. It was very pleasant.
This sweetness became more pronounced with each steeping as well.

Each time I poured the pot into the cup, a really pleasant aroma rose up from the tea as well. This was my first experience with Dragon Well (Long Jing), at least that I know of, and it was a good one. Glad I have more than a sample of this!
