From Vicony Teas

Also know as Dragon Well Tea, Longjing Tea was the only one tea that survives thousands of years and still it is often called the national drink of China and is frequently presented as a National Gift to visiting heads of state. It is also a favorite tea of today’s many top leaders, with a portion of production reserved for them every year.

Longjing Tea is complex and multi-layered with the irresistible combination of warm and creamy mouthfeel, hazel nut notes and searingly spring-freshness. The Longjing tea showed by ViconyTeas was made in the traditional way with tealeaves harvested before Gu Yu (Grain Rain, April 20).

Thank you Vicony Teas for this free sample!

Leaf Quality:
The sample was comprised completely of tea buds attached to another leaf or two. The flat, green leaves were very fragrant and delicate. The brewed leaves smelled sweet, vegetal, and fruity. Their color didn’t change much even after the second brewing.

Brewed Tea:
The leaves created a very light, pale yellow brew. It tasted sweet, delicate, and perhaps a bit nutty in the finish. The first brew beat other dragon well teas I’ve tried by far.
Second Steeping
The second brew was sweet as well. The nutty finish transformed into a more fruity one. I noticed a tiny vegetal flavor underneath the more floral notes.
Third Steeping
The flavor had not changed much since the second steeping. In fact, the only difference was that it was slightly mellower.

This was a really good Longjing tea. I haven’t had a great one in a while.
