Tasting notes:  refreshing and flavorful, slightly nutty, with a citric sweetness

Farm Location: West lake (Xi Hu) Zhe Jiang, China

Long Jing or "Dragonwell" is easily one of china's most famous teas. MANY producers make Long Jing, but it's a tea that takes a massive amount of skill to make correctly. For example, just a few extra moments on the pan-firing and you could get an over-dominance of nuttiness or even losing a grade because of slightly misshapen leaves. All that aside, this is one of the best Long Jing teas I have had. Its source is legitimate -- taste it and you'll have no more concerns. Instructions for properly brewing Long Jing green tea are included with each order, but because since I'm such a great guy I'll also list it below. :)
