Longjing and Biluochun
by: Julian

I have been drinking the three new launches the last few days, am very pleased with the quality.

- Mengding Ganlu
Sweet and light, very refreshing and caliming. Like Biluochun. Subtle and poetic.

- Yellow Tea - Mengding Huangya
First tasting using boiling water seems good. Rich body, suspending buds.

- Zhuyeqing
Beautiful buds. Rich body. Very long aftetaste.

Longjing tea season is likely to start around 23 March. Same for the two AAA graded Biluchun tea.

Patiently waiting for Longjing
by: George

I just discovered your site today and I'm glad I did. I'm looking forward to the Longjing season.

Years ago, I enjoyed Longjing because a friend hand carried tea from Xi Hu, showed me how to brew it properly and gave me some as a gift. Now I look forward to enjoying this tea again.

Dragon Well and Biluochun is shipping now.
by: Julian

Dragon well tea harvests started on 21 March. We are starting to ship our pre-orders. More info will be given in tomorrow's Newsletter on this year's harvest.

(This season is tougher than last year but we are keeping the same price. Expect our quality to be even more significantly higher than competitors this year, but quality to be slightly lower than last year's.)

We will also start to ship Biluochun tea shortly.

Next batch coming...
by: Julian

A quick update, we are shipping all the Biluochun AAA grades now, as well as the Dragon Well tea AAA grades and above.

This year has been very cold, so we are still waiting for the harvests for Dragon Well A and B grade to take place. In any case, we expect to start shipping all the Dragon Well tea grades by 7 April, as promised.

Next coming are the Silver Needle white tea and a newly launched green tea called Anji Baicha. We are launching a very high grade of Anji, so price will be higher, but as usual, newsletter readers will get a 15% pre-launch offer.
