This was a gift from Melody over at StarbucksMelody.com. If you enjoy starbucks or coffee you should really go and read her wonderful Starbucks fan site / community / blog.

I like how the tea was packed in a plastic bag inside the tin, it kept them from being crushed in shipping.

Made this an additional time with 750ml of water, it turned out better, still a little bitter at the finish. The resteep of the same leaves turned out very bitter, but enjoyable with a bit of honey.

I think i may need to play with the parameters on this tea. It has a nice sweet toasted vegetal promise, and I hope I can smooth of the bitter finish. For now it will have to stay at “acceptable”.

A seriously solid Long Jing. Too bad it’s been discontinued, along with the rest of the Tazo Collection series of loose tea.
