 Guyu Longjing | 雨前龍井

 Tasting notes: Grassy, nutty, velvety
 Origin: Meijiawu, Hangzhou, China
 Oxidation: ⦿○○○○

Grown in one of the five certified Longjing areas and harvested before the "guyu" rainy season, this refreshing tea is full of nuttiness and umami.

Why we love it:

  • It is one of China’s top ten teas with a history that goes back centuries—a tea that was immortalised in the poetry of Emperor Qianlong in the Qing dynasty.
  • It has a savoury, grassy flavour that transforms into a sweet aftertaste in your throat.
  • Of the three Longjing harvests, Guyu Longjing is the second harvest. The leaves are longer and greener in appearance and the tea tastes stronger than the first harvest (pre-Qingming).
  • It comprises one bud and one to two leaves, and has a thick, round texture.

The traditional style or ‘grandpa style’ of brewing Longjing green tea is to simply put some leaves in a normal drinking glass, add hot water and enjoy! You can leave the glass uncovered to let the steam escape.

The most magical thing happens when brewing Longjing—the leaves stand upright and dance up and down while they open. To get front-row seats to this show, you’ll want to use glass teaware!

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
