“I’ve seen a few reviews that say this a good tea for young sheng lovers and they are right. I do like young sheng and still I would pass up this tea every year when I placed my order with Yunnan...” Read full tasting note

Description

Hui Long Zhai lies in the western part of the county of Teng Chong (Bao Shan Prefecture), a mountainous region with peaks as high as 3000 meters bordering Myanmar. Relatively cool weather and high altitude conditions makes this one of the latest picked “first flush” teas in Yunnan, it is picked in the late part of April and in September. Buds and leaves are picked together just as they sprout and are then wok-fired by hand for a very short time but at a high temperature. The result is a tea with longer shelf life, and more importantly a high level of aroma when brewed! This tea is nutty with a fast huigan, but is a little more bitter and stimulating than Simao area green teas! My personal new favorite green tea! A good choice for a morning wake up brew or a brief departure from raw pu-erh!
