Looking for a good Long jing (dragon well)

by partybeast92 » May 14th 18 7:02 pm

Hey,

Im searching for a good quality Long Jing. I often buy from what-cha but their long jing is from 2017 and would rather want a 2018 harvest


Thankful for suggestions :)

I second the Jing Tea Shop and TeaSpring suggestions, and also would recommend Amazing Green Tea--the tea is great and Julian is really passionate about it. The higher grades are on par with or better than what's offered by Jing and Teaspring, and the B grade is really not much lower in quality for a fantastic price.

Hey partybeast92 -

You might consider our zhejiang lung ching - http://www.adagio.com/masters/zhejiang_lung_ching.html

And our regualr Dragonwell here: http://www.adagio.com/green/dragonwell.html - is one of our most popular teas.

Teas from the 2018 harvest are going to be arriving soon! Hope you get a chance to try them!

I agree about jing and would also recommend seven cups tea's Shi Feng Longjing. It's pricey but I think the quality is there.

I second Adagio, but I also have to plug Lake Missoula Tea Company. Their peeps really go to the source and pick out some really high quality stuff. Here's the link to their Dragonwell:

In the past I've had very good experiences with Adagio dragon wells.

Also have a look at two grades from Teasenz, they seems to be both from 2018:
