  1. Excellent relationship price quality tea. Stronger than a grade A, a little bitter but the finish is sweet and a medium large afterstate. It’s less complex than a qunti cultivar but if you prefer sweetness, and easy to drink tea, buy this cultivar.
    Better than all teas that I’ve tried from western tea companies at a half of it’s price. If you want to buy a cheap tea with a good quality, don’t think it so much, with the plus that you are buying a longjing tea directly from the producer.
