明前西湖龙井, 龙坞: complex floral aroma, round, mellow, fresh, sweet, umami, long and winding aftertaste, slightly bitter but turns sweet quickly
Tea farm location: Long Wu Village, Hangzhou.
Cultivar: Quntizhong (Tu Cha)
Presenting our West Lake Longjing Yuqian Tea, cultivated from the Quntizhong cultivar, also known as Tu Cha. See here the difference between Tu Cha and Long Jing 43.
