drank Long Jing by Min River Tea
2816 tasting notes

I’m continuing on with my Long Jing theme for this afternoon. I was grateful to have these samples sent to me by Min River, because I don’t have a lot of Chinese green teas in my stash currently, mostly just Japanese ones.

This is a lovely dragonwell. The tea liquor brews up to be very light and it’s quite aromatic. I get a lot of nutty flavor from this, as well as some sweetness… but also salty in the finish. It reminds me a bit of green beans with salt. I wish I had some more but alas… this was the last of the 2 sample packs I got.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
