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
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.
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.
