From Palais des Thes

Long Jing means “Dragon Well” in Chinese.

It is one of the most popular green teas in China. The plants grow on the upper slopes of the Tieh Mu mountains.

The tea can be recognized by the way it is folded into a characteristic sword-like shape.

It has a delicate fragrance, a slightly sweet flavor and a silky texture. The liquor is velvety and its chestnut aroma lingers for a long time in the mouth.

Tea and food pairings:
Try the delicious pairing of Long Jing with fish such as cod, dogfish, or monkfish. For cheese lovers, it perfectly pairs with goat cheese, such as Crottin.

A subtle yet enjoyable green tea that does not offend the sensitive palate. The dry leaves are a pale green with streaks of off white running through them, like a forest in the mist. The leaves are pressed flat and rather unique in appearance, almost as though they were chipped off of a larger unity. The scent of the leaves is light and unassuming, and the brewed nose is just the right amount of sweet and nutty. There is a very mild earth tone as well. This is what I’d consider a neutral tea, it should not offend those who shy away from earth or nutty notes, and is sweet enough to provide a good flavor for those who demand it.

The long jing is much better than their pu. A little bit nutty, but not very deep in flavor. It’s better than mediocre

Palais des Thés Advent Calendar – Day 11

Yay, a nice Chinese green tea is the perfect thing for after lunch! Palais des Thés is not generally the place I would go to source such a tea, but I’m thankful to have this sachet available nonetheless.

This is a perfectly nice, mild dragonwell. It’s smooth and creamy with light vegetal notes that remind me of sugar snap peas and edamame. There’s some tasty nuttiness as well, perhaps pine nuts? Now that I mention it, there is a slight piney note here as well. And there’s a little hint of apricot at the end, which is something I often find in Chinese green teas.

It’s perfectly lovely and drinkable, and it’s making my workday so much better. :)

I’m so excited! I’m usually so bad at picking up the various notes, and I’ll read reviews and be wondering what the heck I drank compared to what everyone else has to say! This time, I actually DID figure out the sweetness and the chestnut notes, so I’m honestly rather proud. It’s a very light tea in steeped color, so light it made me wonder if I’d done something wrong. And unsurprisingly, it doesn’t have a super strong flavor, but it’s still plenty strong. It’s lightly astringent in a good way, and doesn’t have any grassiness or spinach flavor, which is my turnoff in green teas. I wouldn’t necessarily rebuy just because it’s not my – cup of tea – but it’s very nice.

Unexpectedly, the looseleaf Long Jing from Palais des Thés in the sleek aluminum tube seems not to be as good as the tea in the cotton muslin sachet. Strange.

I had been wondering what their Long Jing leaves would look like and was surprised to find that they are very broken up. It’s quite possible that this is an old batch which has been jostled about a lot, as I bought the box set from one of the social shopping sites. The liquor was darker golden veering peach (not green) in color, but there were lots of particles at the bottom of the glass, so that probably had something to do with it. The taste was not that great either, and the liquor had none of the silken texture which I’ve come to associate with Long Jing.

The best part of this experience was the housing: I love the test tubes and will use them to store small amounts of teas once I’ve emptied them. Which won’t take long—this one contained less than 10 grams…

This is quite a good tea. At first, it will surprise you with sweet aroma, which changes into nutty and vegetal (namely asparagus) as the aroma unfolds. It has a smooth feel in the mouth, but leaves a slightly astringent lingering aftertaste.
Even though it is a good tea that I would recommend, I think it is a bit expensive (15 eur /20 usd) for the quality you get.
