longjing #43Tea Varietal

Mrs. Li’s 1st Picking #43 Varietal Dragonwell is the first picking of the whole region. This varietal was specifically bred and selected to bud even earlier than classic Dragonwell in Shi Feng and yields yellower plumper buds that make for gorgeous steeping in glassware. While classic Dragonwell is all about rocky mineral texture, the new #43 is a crisp, bright focused experience centered around stronger flavor and aroma and more pronounced sweetness.

The very first picking of the year is full of all the nutrients and sugars stored by the plant all winter long and offers a more complex, sweet and subtle taste experience. It has a longer aftertaste and thicker texture than later harvests. This tea grows in soil full of quartz and white sand wdrinking in water from natural mountain springs, yielding a flavor that simply can’t be matched outside of Shi Feng itself.

" Longjing #43 is way more about aroma. It is bright, tighter, and more focused. The texture is smoother on the pallet and the flavor and aroma are stronger. If you love the classic sweet Chinese green tea ideal, Longjing #43 is absolutely worth trying.... "
