2016 Crystal White Long Jing 50 g 1601

$71.00

Shui Jing Bai - Crystal White Long Jing is grown in mountains of 800 meters above sea level on Sheng Shan mountain in Zhe Jiang Province. 2016 crop

The taste is extremely fresh and Umani!  The term Zi Wei - nourishing taste, like chicken soup that soothes your body and soul. The leaves are tender enough to be consumed.

Mr. Shan is in his late 50's with a heart of a young kid.  He is playful and thus tea trees are his project, tea mountain is his play ground. One of Mr. Shan's play project began with a mutated tree, one of the LJ tree leaves turned white and so he crafted branches for propagation.  During the years of trial cultivation, some keeps on mutating, the leaves were so white, it's whiter than An Ji Bai Cha (it's called white tea, but it is a green tea).  Harvesting only began a few years ago.

Higher temperature is prefered by this tender green tea, off boiling is required to open up this tea.
