From Masters Teas

Our 2019 Shi Feng Long Jing, which translates to Lion’s Peak Dragonwell, is one of the most famous green teas in China. It hails from the equally famous and historic West Lake area in Hangshou, Zhejiang province. This Shi Feng Long Jing is a pre-Qing Ming Festival, and so its early spring harvest results in a tender, young plucking. The liquor is a pale yellow, with a soft, sweet chestnut aroma. The crisp body is delicately nutty, quite complex, with a flickering hint of sweet grass and apricot blossoms.

Sipdown (1390)!

Adagio/Masters Tea reached out to me on IG last week to see if I would have an interest in trying a selection of their 2021 production straight teas, and of course I said yes! I am not really a big fan of green tea in general, but out of all the various spring tea in the assortment, it was this Long Jing that I felt immediately drawn to! I love nutty flavours in teas, and the aroma of buttery chestnuts coming from the dry leaf was off the charts!

Historically, I’ve found most Dragonwell on the spectrum of “unpleasant to unexciting” but I thought this one was pretty good. I mean, as I sipped on it Grandpa style throughout the afternoon, the taste of the liquor does not match the incredible chestnut aroma of the dry leaves. However, it was very smooth with a really pleasant mouthfeel and the taste had some more bean-y and creamy corn silk elements alongside a hint of that chestnut that caught my attention to much.

I shared the rest of this sample with coworkers who I knew would appreciate it more than me, but I’m glad I tried it!

To me, the perfect morning cuppa is fresh green tea. This is some high quality Dragonwell that Adagio is now beginning to source through their new Sub-Comp. “Masters Tea”. The leaves are thin, vibrant green/yellow, and with a heady sweet aroma and dashes of tangy fruits like tangerines, pineapple, mango, and papaya. It’s quite a bouqet! I brewed this several different ways, but i recommend a glass teapot (6oz), a small handful of leaves (2.5g) and brewed at 185F with the lid off. The broth is an opaque yellow with silky chestnuts, mild vegetle tones, and sweet clean finish. It’s a great tea, and again its a perfect start to a day!

We’ll have to agree to disagree about our perfect morning cuppa – but, regardless, this does sound lovely! Also, following you on IG now, and kicking myself because I didn’t realize I wasn’t already!
