Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea

Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea


(rating: 4 out of 5)

Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea is one of the famous tea in Zhejiang Province. Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea is produced from good quality young tea buds and leaves. Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea has a sweet and flowery taste with a slight hint of nutty flavor to it. It is soothing and refreshing to drink through out the day. Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea is interesting as with different brewing methods give different level of taste and flavor. We tried with a lower temperature but higher steeping time yielded a wonderful cup. Kai Hua Long Ding Green Tea is something new to try this season.

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using glass-based or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2.5 - 3 grams of tea leaves (1-2.5 teaspoons) for every 225 ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 70°c (158°F) to 80°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

I had bought this tea because it was the same type as one I had tasted from a friend that had gotten his from China. The previous type had tasted very much like true licorice root tea. On the other hand, this tea tasted almost nothing like that one. The quality is good, and very fresh as I had ordered in April for the newest spring crop. To be honest nothing really stood out to me in this tea as compared to some of the others I bought, and while the flavor is good its not as special as I had hoped.
