Taster’s Review:

I like Dragon Well tea (I didn’t always, but that’s another story), so it doesn’t surprise me that I’m enjoying this Organic Superfine Long Jing from Teavivre.  I knew I’d like it.  And I do.

But, what I didn’t expect is how much I’d like it.  This is one of the very best – if not the best – Dragon Well teas I’ve encountered.  It tastes so crisp and clean.  It tastes sweet and slightly vegetative, with buttery undertones.  Vaguely reminiscent of steamed fresh veggies – sweet, mild tasting veggies.  Like fresh lima beans with just a touch of melted butter.  Delicious and mouthwatering!

What I really like about this tea, though, is not the vegetable taste but the taste of freshly roasted chestnuts!  Because of this sweet, nutty flavor, it tastes very much like autumn to me, and is making me look forward to a time when it will be cool enough to start a fire in the fireplace and roast some chestnuts!  YUM!

Drinking this Long Jing offers a great sense of calm and satisfaction, but at the same time, I can feel it rejuvenate me.  I feel invigorated as I drink it – but not so invigorated that I am bouncing off the walls.  It leaves me feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Another exceptional tea from a company that seems to offer nothing but exceptional teas – Teavivre!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!

  1. I absolutely love Long Jing. This tea (and other things) got me through university!

    Another similar tea you might love is 蒙頂黃芽 (Meng Ding Huang Ya). It’s technically a yellow tea but tastes very much like Long Jing. Actually, I might even prefer it to Long Jing…

    I love tea, too 🙂

    Thank you for posting!

    • Hello James:

      I am a huge fan of yellow tea. In fact, it is my favorite tea, although I do not drink it very often because a) it is a bit more expensive than other teas and b) I believe that if I were to start drinking yellow tea on a daily basis, I believe that it wouldn’t be so special any longer. I would still love it, yes, and be very happy that I was able to have the opportunity to drink it every day … but it wouldn’t be as special as it is now, and the moments that I have to enjoy it now wouldn’t be as special. You know?

      Thank you for reading!
