Longjing First Flush 2019
This is a more affordable version of the most sought after Chinese green tea. While some people are willing to pay thousands for a small pack of the earliest harvest in Spring, Tea Hong brings you what is authentic but slightly later in season, for similar enjoyment but much less in price. It is, nevertheless, still a first flush — some tea grows slower than others, dependent on the cultivar, horticulture and micro-climate.

Warm buttery aroma on an undertone of peas and cereals accented with light herbs and honey. Bright, lively infusion that tastes savory with light bites of bitter gourd accentuated with sea salt. Rich savory aftertaste that gradually becomes sweet and refreshing.
The taste character is quite different, albeit pleasant, when this tea is infused lightly. To experience its full spectrum, steep the leaves in a well pre-heated high density Yixing pot between 160 ~200 ml at 75~80°C at at least 2 g of leaves to 100 ml of water for 4 to 6 minutes.
