Yes, oh yes, our 2011 Pre-Qing Ming Longjing teas arrived late today.
And I believe that this year the tea is the best we have ever had. Both of our selections – the Dafo and the Meijiawu Village are dynamic, fresh and vigorous. Just inhaling the aroma from packages as we ripped them open was a treat.
The Meijiawu Village is highly aromatic with a fragrance that is reminiscent of the sweetness of Chinese lychee and loquats. The Dafo is confidently toasty and earthy, and reminds me of the aroma of fresh greens and new harvest rice in China.
Each are different and both are delicious. It’s a difficult choice to decide on a favorite……both are exquisite and full of the energy of the season.
