Premium Laoshan Long Jing Green Tea
A refreshing and flavorful green tea from Laoshan Village in Shandong Province. This, like the Imperial Laoshan Green Tea we've carried in previous years, is grown in a large greenhouse that protects its tender new shoots from freezing in the early spring, and then the cover is rolled back once the weather warms in April.
The varietal is Long Jing #43, just like Dragonwell Green Tea, and like Dragonwell, it is lightly roasted and the leaves are flattened. However, the flavor is distinctly its own, leading one to speculate on the role of climate and terroir in the production of Dragonwell tea.
We recommend brewing this at between 170-180f.
Spring 2022 Harvest.
