Review of Pan Long Yin Hao (Nr. 198)

7 of 104 of 53 of 577 of 100
Very GoodGoodReasonable

Cup at home, made from small, coiled, curly leaves of Chinese green tea from Zheijiang, some of which resemble granulate. Pours clear straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear, leafy aroma with mild touches of nuts and hints of fruit. Bitter, leafy flavour with nutty touches and dusty hints. Moderately astringent palate with a leafy and mildly spicy aftertaste. A very nice brew, one of the best pure green teas I have ever had - and I generally flavour virtually all other styles, so this particular tea really does impress me. Mild but complex. It is supposed to be a recurrent winner of the tea contest organised regularly by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture, and, well, there might be something to it. Quite expensive (150 DKK per 100 g), so I am happy I received a free sample from my local outlet.
