From Tealux

Excellent Longjin. Typical flat leaves. Definitely brew at low temp (less than 80, 75 ideal). Very nice flavour.

In this afternoon’s steep-off chez sherapop, Tealux Dragonwell Long Jing Superior is going sip to sip, sniff to sniff with Norbu Xi Hu Long Jing. I am afraid that the Tealux is suffering by contrast.

The liquor of the brew is golden, not green—and certainly not jade, as promised on the package—so that’s the first red flag that something is amiss. Did I oversteep? Overheat? Overleaf? No, none of the above. My brew has a very neutral taste and seems more baked than steamed. This tea is simply not as good as the Norbu, despite the “top grade” claim on the label. I am lowering my evaluation.
