The robust green tea leaves are flat and golden-green in color with a lovely shine that comes from the traditional method of pan-frying the freshly picked buds in large steel woks. Pan-frying stops the tea from oxidizing, and also contributes to it its nutty, nourishing taste--a taste as sweet and clean as the bright water of the spring. As the savory fragrance rises from the cup and the undulating pleasure spreads through the mouth, all wishes are granted.
Long Jing epitomizes the depth and body of Chinese green teas and feels like walking in a summer forest after the rain. It is a perfect tea for beginner drinkers.
