From JK Tea Shop

Shi Feng Long Jing(dragon well) is the highest quality among all the Longjings from Zhejiang province.

In China, there is a territory divide on the Shi Feng Long Jing, Mei Wu Longjing and Xi Hu Long Jing and Zhejiang Long Jing.

Xi Hu Long Jing refers to the Longjing is growing in the Xi Hu areas, excluding the Shi Feng areas and Mei Wu areas. Only the teas above can be named as Xi Lu Long Jing in general. And Shi Feng Long Jing is the best in its aroma and taste.

I just got the teas from my Shi Feng Long Jing farmer friend yesterday, and cant wait to try it.

Super fresh, floral aroma. rotate the teas in the warm-uped cup, sharp chestnut aroma comes up, makes me wanna inhale the aroma longer. Anyway, I cannt wait the taste the tea liquid.

Actually I compared two teas last night. Both of them are Shi Feng Long Jing, and are from the same supplier. The only difference lies in the bush variety. One is the Long Jing No. 43 bush; another is the Long Jing old bush.

First infusion; old bush enjoys much high floral aroma and thick & sweet taste.
No. 43, still good, but comparatively weak aroma and taste than old bush.

Second infusion; much obvious; old bush also enjoys thick taste, super sweet aftertaste.
No. 43, flavor is also pleasing, but taste has some water feeling; in other words, its tea liquid contains some water taste, because of lack of interior substance brewed out.

Third infusion; much much obvious. Old bush, still thick, sweet taste,
No. 43. a lot of water taste.

Fourth infusion; old bush, has a little water taste
No. 43. more water taste to cover tea taste.

So I am more difinitely sure what teas I need to purchase, and as always I am supportive of the old bush.
