5g in a 12oz glass grandpa style, 175F water, then hotter to top up.
This is the first real, quality longjing I’ve ever had so I can’t compare it to other productions. I am kind of blown away by this tea. I’ve never been a huge green tea drinker but this has made me a little more open minded about that.
I didn’t really take notes on the flavors or aromas, what really stuck with me was the full body and mind effect of this tea. About an hour into drinking this I was feeling so good. I don’t really have the words to describe it and I sort of refuse to call it qi. I just felt incredible. Heavy limbs, eyelids, etc, just incredibly calm but mentally alert.
This tea is a little bit beyond what I usually spend but I would (and will) buy it again next year if it comes back.
