I was a bit disappointed with this tea. The other Lung Ching teas are significantly better (though also significantly more expensive). The tea from the 1lb bag I ordered also had a strange flavor, I suspect it got infused from some strongly flavored teas in the same box... maybe?
I';ve been out of this tea for a couple of months (live just over the border in Mass.) and am truly jonesing for it! Will be heading to millerton in the next week. There's the crazy expensive one that I've sampled in the shop, but the basic one is just as good ( at least you don't freak out in the car on the way home b/c you spent so much cash). Easy to do at Harney's , but it's so worth it!
I drink this tea most days and have brewed it in a vareity of ways. My favorite so far is with the tasting cup they sell at Harney's shops (I don't have a Yixing pot). It's so good that I'm eager to try the real thing (like their Meijaiwu), but that might have to wait for a special occasion. Definitely one of the better not-quite-Longjing's available.
