Description

Long Jing is a famous green tea from Hangzhou, Province of Zhejiang, China. Literally translated as ‘Dragon Well’ – it is named after a well that after rain falls on its surface, sometimes exhibits a sinuous and twisting boundary with the well water, which is supposed to resemble the movement of a traditional Chinese dragon. The tea is handpicked and consists of one bud and two side leaves with the shape resembling a sparrow’s tongue.

 

Ming Qian Long Jing harvested during early spring before the Qing Ming festival represents the first flush of Long Jing when the tea plants are re-emerging from winter dormancy. This gives rise to an extremely potent level of antioxidants and a tea that reaches a momentary peak of sweetness and complexity.

Please note there is limited availability due to the seasonality of this tea.

Useful Tips You Need

In a small teapot, steep for 30 seconds if you like your tea quite light and up to 1 minute if you prefer something stronger. The bigger your teapot, the longer the steeping time.

If you brew your tea in a convenience cup, do not throw the leaves away after 1 round. Good tea leaves are good for 3 rounds. You may want to steep the leaves slightly longer with each subsequent round.
