I just recieved a package from our local tea shop – tealand.sk. Lots of high quality teas and also some free samples.
The first thing i tried was this Long Ding (not Long Jing) – a chinese tea where only the buds (young leafs) are used. This is a premium quality tea, you can see that the leafs are approx. the same size, no dust, no crippled leafs. Frangrance is very strong and grassy. Looks like a very good chinese green.
Steeped for 45 sec. like the suplier adviced. Looks like it was the right amount of time. The beverage had a pretty light green color. Though it will also taste very light like the an ju bai cha. But i was wrong, the taste was also like the fragrance of the dry leafs – strong and grassy, but also with a light flowery aroma. Almost taste like good Bi luo chun, but without the fruity aroma. The liquor was creamy and pure.
It’s a very good quality tea, but….it is pretty similar to most of the chinese teas, it doesn’t give you a special aroma and taste like bi luo chun or long jing (dragonwell). Even though it’s not special, it’s very good.
