- Brewing tips
Guyu Longjing | 雨前龍井
Tasting notes: Grassy, nutty, velvety
Origin: Meijiawu, Hangzhou, China
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.
