Long Jing Green Tea. Hiland Brand.
Loose Leaf. 120g packets.
Also spelled Lung Ching or, Loong ching or even Loong Qing.
Dragon Well Tea. A very good green tea, leaves are heated earlier after processing (picking) to stop the natural fermentation process. Please use water at 80 degrees centigrade.
Also to check that is still in stock.
This site is not linked to the shop, so it may very well have sold out.
It actually has sold out now, and I had an email from a Karen- oh sorry, a Catherine that expressed disappointment that it was not as strong as she expected and compared it to another brand that she was drinking.
Now I will therefore take this off the market but anyone that disagrees can email me to get some back in which could take a week if it is still available.
I am trying some now and feel that it certainly does have that classic Loong Jing taste. Whether it is of insufficient quality I cannot say, however teas can have wildly different prices in those markets that give you a choice. And many are gifted these wildly expensive teas so cannot expect to get the same quality in say New Zealand.
Ah OK, have talked to the importer and what has happened here, is that different years give different flavours. So sometimes stronger tasting, sometimes lighter tasting. So I will add this tea back to the range.
And actually, this is a new season Long Jing, that has just come in.
