Cultivar 43 is the most famous and widespread variety of Longjing - the Dragon Well tea. These peculiar tea leaves are dark green in color, and they are delicately hand-processed to ensure the best quality brewing. The gems of this cultivar sprout much before the traditional Qingming festival - which corresponds to the 4th or 5th of April - and the leaves are standard in shape and size. The most careful observers will notice light yellow spots on the surface of the leaves, which might be mistaken for impurities: they are actually a precious indicator of the presence of buds, covered in white fur and rich in amino acids, that give this tea its amazing freshness.
This cultivar will amaze all green tea enthusiasts with a subtle bamboo fragrance that will fill the air at each infusion, surprising the palate with a sweet aroma of boiled chestnuts and butternut pumpkin, and a lingering aftertaste of turnip and eucalyptus. Its umami note also makes it a perfect choice for a refreshing cold brew on a hot summer day.
