Tea Review: Premium Long Jing Dragonwell (Sparrowtail)

Premium Long Jing Dragonwell Hangzhou Green Tea
Type: Green
Origin: China, Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 175°
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaf aroma has nutty and sharp green notes with an unexpected hint of sweet cocoa.

The light yellow infusion has a deeply nutty aroma with green vegetable notes.  The taste is smooth with notes of nuts and green vegetables and a long sweet green finish.

The dry leaf aroma was like opening a fresh tin of nuts.  The flavor and aroma notes were consistently nutty and green throughout three infusions with no astringency.  I worried this tea might have aged out as it's from the Spring 2020 harvest, yet it was delightfully flavorful and well worth drinking today.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
