Appearance: The dried tea consists of long thin leaves with dark brown, yellow and green hues, the traditional "Cao Mi (brown rice)" color of Long Jing. The "Yu Ye (fish shaped leaves)" indicate the first harvest of the year. The scent of the dry leaves is a combination of sweet roasted green beans and a freshly roasted peanut scent supplemented with a very little hint of anise.
