DESCRIPTION

Long Jing is also known as "Dragonwell" or "Dragon's Well". No matter what you call it, just know that this batch is one of the grand cru teas of China and a phenomenal introduction to premium green tea. It is grown on the slopes of the Tieh Mu Mountains in the Zhejiang Province. Skilled artisans pan-fire fresh leaf-and-bud sets into oval shapes reminiscent of the way tealeaves appear on the plant. Our Long Jing leaves are flat, smooth and shiny - an indication of their superior quality. They range in color from deep fir to spring green and have aromas of firewood and toasted nuts. They brew into an infusion that is translucent, pale and buttery yellow, with an aroma that is true to the leaf, plus a light, sweetly vegetal note, like snapped green beans, and an elusive, underlying sweetness. In the mouth, flavors of roasted chestnuts, almonds and cashews are complemented by a velour-like mouthfeel and a complete lack of astringency. The aftertaste is lingering and nutty, with hints of vanilla and sweet, warming spices.

This tea is certified USDA organic.

Your tea is hand packed in a resealable pouch at no additional charge. For an additional $5 you can select our new Black Triangle Signature Canister.
