Thank you to Aprtea for this free sample

The dry leaf smells like a toasty yellow or green tea and all of the tiny leaves are intact and not broken at all. The leaves are quite small and only 1-2 cm long.

I think this is the first longjing I’ve had that isn’t fruity. This is more nutty and lightly vegetal (soy bean and chestnut) but very little sweetness. No bitter or sour notes. I would not say I tasted any of the toastiness I smelled in the dry leaf, however I think this tea is almost savoury in that it is not super sweet/stone fruit like many longjings. The chestnut flavour is characteristic of longjing, however, and from the look and taste of the leaves I can tell they are of high quality and have been handled delicately.

Flavors: Chestnut, Soybean

This was a decent long jing tea but not among the best I’ve had. It was buttery , nutty & mellow.
