Grown in Xihu(西湖), Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

Flattened tea leaves, with one bud and one or two leaves

Pale green yellow when brewed

A subtle, rich, orchid like taste and aroma, with no hint of bitterness

XiHu (West Lake) Dragon Well green tea, or Long Jing as it is known in China, is commonly regarded as one of China’s top ten teas, and is often served to visiting head’s of states. This premium Long Jing tea is an absolutely fantastic example of this tea. Mostly handmade it has no hint of bitterness, instead it has a delightfully subtle classic green tea taste and aromatic scent.

Free sample from Angel at Teavivre.

Another backlog tea. One day I shall catch up … honest!

This is a great tea. It is all warm, summer day, and savoury sweetness. The summery feel is enhanced by the way the leaf blades dance on top of the water. This makes it particularly worth brewing in a glass teapot.

Both the dry and the wet leaf have a grassy, umami, pork chop aroma. The liquor is very pale green verging on colourless. If you are used to Yorkshire Tea, you could be forgiven for thinking you had been given a cup of plain hot water until you smell the vegetal aroma of the liquor.

The taste is quite complex. It comprises vegetal, spinach notes together with the aforementioned pork chop and a solid nuttiness that gives it a truly full-bodied mouth feel, and this is all underlain by a delicate sweetness. The aftertaste is sparkling and savoury, and lasts well. Yum.

an awesome tea.

little glass pitcher method (grandpa style)

when I smell the leaves dry, they smell like sweet-grass.

when I smell the leaves wet, they smell more intense.

when I smell the brewed tea, it smells sweet like sweet grass.

when I taste the brewed tea, it tastes like sweet-grass

a note: you must use proper water temperature for this tea (most dragonwells don’t need it) or it will get bitter fast thus why I’m scoring a 95.

many thanks to angel tevivre for this amazing tea sample
