CHARACTERISTICS: Longjing has a very simple appearance: flat, straight, dry, neat, and smooth. Light-green in color, with the aroma of dried green peas. Its tea soup is clear, yellow, and bright, with a mouthfeel of freshness, mellowness, and a subtle thickness. When the leaves are fully opened, the rich, quintessential Longjing fragrance overflows the entirety of the drinker's cup.
