What a nice surprise on this rather bleak day. I got this as a sample who knows when and forgot all about it, but when I was rummaging through my tea box, hey presto! This is the first long ding I’ve tried. The leaves look very similar to long jing, long and narrow, but they are a darker green and sort of curled in on themselves. It tastes quite mineraly — none of the green bean taste I’m used to getting from long jing. Not my favorite, but interesting. I think I might go poke through that box some more.
