Zhejiang Xihu Long Jing

Green tea, China

Long Jing means Dragon Well, the legend tells that the inhabitants of the current village of Long Jing found a stone in the shape of a dragon under which was a spring. This vintage comes from a small family farm located in the heart of the "Long Jing Cha" appellation, recognized as AOP since 2011. The appellation includes 3 growing regions: Xihu, Qiantang and Yuezhou. This tea comes from the village of Longwu located in the Xihu region, manufactured by Mr. Huang, it comes from cultivar #43. Its spring harvest gives it velvety aromatic notes of cooked vegetables, a slight astringency, with a beautiful complexity on the palate evolving towards chestnut notes typical of this appellation.

It is interesting to compare to Long Jing 43 from Guizhou which comes from this same cultivar planted in another Chinese Province and worked in the Long Jing PDO manner.
