Great Tea

Great tea as always from Happy Earth Tea! I would have to taste this grade back to back with their standard Long Jing. I'm not sure if my palette is sophisticated enough to enjoy the differences between the two haha! Makes a great cup though, I definitely enjoy it.

Thank you Greg! The Xi Hu Dragon Well should have more body and be smoother than the Jade Mountain, our regular Long Jing.
