Hui Long or Simao?

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

I bought three spring green tea from this year's harvest on ChaWangShop to get some supplies for summer sipping. Actually to be precise there were two greens and one white tea. I already wrote about "White Peony“ and it was certainly nice surprise.

Simao and Hui Long are enduring classics and I buy it regularly. I prepared both teas at a time and compared them.

Both are quite similar with a certain "Yunnan" character. Hui Long is alpine green tea from Huilong Zhai area, located at the altitude of 1,650 meters. The average temperature there is 15°C and tea plants - about 50 year’s old trees - are getting a lot of moisture. It is Yunnan varietal big leaf tea tree.

5g of Simao seems optically slightly less than the same amount of Hui Long. Simao is rolled into small cocoons. Hui Long leaves are rolled lengthwise and tea mades up tiny curls. White Peony, as it is a white tea, it is not rolled at all.

Simao’s infusion is more yellow than Hui Long. The taste of Hui Long is spicier, bolder and with sweeter character in comparison to Simao.

Both teas are very good and suitable for everyday drinking. I personally prefer Hui Long for its spicier taste. Price is almost the same. Hui Long is only about 50cent more expensive.

I recommend using colder water about 70°C for steeping.
