From Jing Tea

A fresh and refreshing Long Jing from the Hang Zhou Appellation and very close from Xi Hu area. This Long Jing Green tea carries the typical nutty flavor. Full bodied green tea, good length, heavy Long Jing green tea drinkers won’t want to miss this one.

Backlogging, and based on my notes and on a fairly recent tasting

Experience buying from Jing Tea Shop

Age of leaf: I received this tea in early June 2011 and brewed it as soon as I got it (the tea is listed as 2011 early spring harvest).

Appearance and aroma of dry leaf: Standard look and aroma of any other quality Long Jing I have seen: deep-green sword-shaped leaves, with a fresh, nutty, and some other pleasant aroma that is both hearty and light.

Brewing guidelines: Glass Bodum pot, leaf free to roam; stevia added.
……….1st: 170; 1’…….Mild, but good: sweet, vegetal, nutty
……….2nd: 175; 1.5’….Decent amount of flavor
……….3rd: 180; 2’……..Very mild flavor
……….4th: 185; 2.5’…..Not much flavor

Color and aroma of tea liquor: Very light green in color; mild, standard Long Jing aroma.

Flavor of tea liquor: My wife and I both like the sweet, nutty and vegetal flavor of this green tea.

Appearance and aroma of wet leaf: Impressive, especially for the price. This seems to be from a true Mao Feng (two leaves and a bud) pluck. Leaves on top during all steepings.

Blends well with: I have blended this with much success with at least one other green tea.

Value: About the best price I have found for a decent Long Jing, at about $2/oz.

Overall: This tea literally has a front row place on our teas shelf due to the solid position it holds in our green tea retinue: it is well priced, composed of fresh, good-looking leaf, and fairs well enough in the flavor department. Until recently (due to tasting lots of samples and getting new teas) we have been drinking this tea regularly. I plan to start brewing it more regularly again, and I will likely buy more of it if-and-when I make a purchase from Jing Tea Shop after the 2012 spring green teas become available.

A great tea that reminds me of my childhood. I left the leaves in the bottom of the mug and just drank it like that. It has the same aftertaste as ever.
