This stunning Ming Qian ‘not’ Long Jing hails from Guizhou, not Long Jing village in Zhejiang, hence the tongue-in-cheek name. Despite the origin, this tea delivers a brilliant and long lingering flavor that many so-called Long Jings would be envious of. Snap pea sweetness is immediately evident from the aroma of dry leaf all the way through every sip. The brilliant green liquor sparkles with tea fuzz, jam-packed with anti-oxidants, and other sweet goodness! Bitterness is completely absent as the clean refreshing soy nutty sweetness tingles the tastebuds long after the sip is over. Ming Qian not Long Jin delivers truly impressive lingering power wrapped in a clean and mouth-watering mouthfeel.
