A mind blowing good West Lake black tea made of wild Long Jing varietal, a classic Hangzhou black tea Jiu Qu Hong Mei. The best one we have found in the past 13 years!
Aromatic, pure, sweet berry, lasting a good 10+ brews, incredibly tasty for a Zhejiang tea!
Wild tea trees are untempered by the human and without city pollution. The taste is pure, crisp and refreshing, unlike tea garden teas. The energy, Qi in Chinese term is very present and soothing.
Recommended water for all teas: very good quality filtered water, ie reverse osmosis filtered water. Spring water suppresses the fragrance quite a bit. Tap water is prohibited!
