Our Review
Lung Ching means "Dragon Well", which refers to an old well halfway up a hill outside of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, where the tea was originally grown. This tea comes from a village the other side of the hill, called. For the last few years, Mr. Zhao has made our Lung Ching. His house and tea factory is up the hill, with hills of tea plants just outside. We like to get our Lung Ching from tea just after the start of the season. The first teas are very, very expensive and often the tea does not match the price. This year we choose a tea that had great body and lovely sweetness, indicative of great levels of amino acids.
Dry Leaves The flat, narrow leaf is stiff and smooth with a spear-like shape about an inch long. Though it looks like a single flat needle, the unit actually comprises two leaves and a bud joined at the stem.
Liquor Pale yellow.
Aroma Steamed bok choy and toasted walnuts, with top notes of sweet spring grass.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body Medium light. The tea is loaded with amino acids that give sweetness and body.
Flavors The delicious meatiness of roasted eggplant with similar steamed bok choy and toasted walnut flavors.
Brewing Time 2 to 3 minutes
Brewing Temperature 175° F

Trying to love green tea
Average Review:

I'm semi new to green tea and so far it's been hard to get past the grassy flavors of them. It's so mild in this tea and the other flavors are truly amazing. This will absolutely be a gateway green tea for me. I suspect I will continue to order this for a while

Beautiful!
Average Review:

Although the flavor in this tea is very subtle, it is enough to taste how truly divine it is. I love how fresh the leaves smell, like fresh cut grass in the summer time. I smell this and think "this is green tea." This is the standard for which all other green teas should be judged.

Practically Perfect
Average Review:

Long jing is my favourite green tea, and I like to try it as it is supplied by different merchants. This Mei Jia Wu of Harney & Sons' is truly excellent. The leaves are beautiful in themselves, uniform in shape and colour, small and well picked. I am not good at describing fragrances or flavours - but the leaves give a rich, slightly nutty fragrance when first moistened, and the infusion is pleasantly complex and lingering. Very smooth. Really, to my mind, an excellent long jing.
