Flat leaves with a clear, sweet, yellow brew, lingering mellow taste, and expansive earthy aroma. There is also a subtle chestnut flavor. Lung Ching is pan fired to prevent oxidation and is then rolled and dried. Because of this processing it retains most of its polyphenols and vitamins. Lung Ching is enjoyable also for the green tea novice. Rich in viatmin C and has a cooling effect that is welcome in hot weather.
