Longjing is a king of all types of green teas. This tea is one of the most favorite and beloved teas in Chine. It is very bright and catchy.
Its history goes back eleven hundred years. And during all this time Longjing was being cultivated on the giant plantations around the Hangzhou city, Zhejiang Province. This type of tea is also produced in provinces of Yunnan and Sichuan, but the truest Longjing is that which is grown on fields of Hangzhou.
Fresh Longjing has a strong, rich, floral-honey flavor with notes of Brazil nuts, orchids and melons. The flavor of tea is pleasant, full and rich, not sharp, but refreshing and sweet. While drinking you can feel the taste of lime honey, watermelon seeds, melon and some notes of fresh fruits.
The aftertaste is refreshing, with a light coolness in the mouth and hints of honey and flowers. The color of the prepared tea is greenish, with a pear shade. Infusion is clean and transparent. But if you overboil it, the color will became darker and the tea will have a bitter taste. Don’t allow this. Drink Longjing while it’s light.
