LoL OK 3 new teas (tea bags to be precise) again. This time they came as a gift from a cousin who lives in Germany. There comes something good out of annoying people with tea stories after all ;) For me at least. I’m seriously starting to be overcrowded with tea. Weird feeling.
Ya and i got 3 packages on the post office: one is Adagio teas, one should be an awesome t shirt. No idea what the third one is…
Back to the tea.
Leaves smell like fresh cut grass or something. Very nice real smell.
Color is yellow. Tea itself smells very herbal but different than dry leaves. Cant remember what it reminds me of.
Leaves are even bigger than white one from this morning. Quite bigger:
Hmmm is that weird smell jasmine? Would be easier to tell if i spoke German better :D It’s a very specific herbal taste, quite strong, and really not bad. Weird for me tho.
I Googled an english description:
China Lung Ching – Widely known as “Dragon Well,” Lung Ching is one of China’s “Ten Famous Teas” eagerly awaited each March and April. Meticulously plucked, withered and pan-fired to perfection, this premium grade tea is a masterful achievement of the balance between bitter and sweet. A sunshine yellow infusion presents contrast. Roasted chestnut resounds and bitter green undertones give way to a softer, sweeter hint of vanilla.
I’m getting the softness. Wouldn’t call it vanilla but ya i get what they meant. And it really is sweet. Quite.
So basically i like it but still find it weird. Or my taste buds do. They will get used to it soon. They always do. I can see this becoming one of those teas that give me cravings…
Fishie teacups are there just for Rabs ;)
