Here is a lesser-known Long Jing that is very well worth its weight in gold: Da Fo (which means '' big Buddha '') is produced in Xinchang (Zhejiang) from the same cultivar as the original Long Jing. The result is delicious. Its beautiful flat green and golden leaves give off aromas of walnut oil and stone fruits. When infused, they release an intensely aromatic and limpid golden liquor: notes of toasted pine nuts, plain potato chips, roasted asparagus and nectarine are revealed harmoniously with lots of umami and almost sweet-salty vibrance. A refreshing and comforting tea at the same time ... a real journey into the world of flavors!
