zhejiang lung ching

One of the most famous of all Chinese green teas, Lung Ching is available in a wide range of grades. This high grade is a fine plucking of young spring leaves, with a deliciously sweet aroma. Pan-firing in a hot wok brings out the classic warm, roasted chestnut notes inherent in the leaf and in this case a hint caramelized sugar and crisp floral essence. Complex and layered, yet subtle in the cup, mellow and softly sweet with a crisp finish.

It is praised for its 'four uniques': jade color, vegetative aroma, mellow chestnut flavor and singular shape.
