Rich and complex with striking chestnut notes, this organic Longjing (Dragonwell) is from the original cultivar in the original center of Longjing production. Although the Longjing #34 cultivar is more common, Mr. Weng (age 85) continues to use the original cultivar to produce his signature tea. It brews a warm, hearty cup with notes of chestnut and hay. Smooth and rich.
