Description

Long Jing is the most renowned green tea. Also known by its translated name, "dragon well", this tea is characterised by its folded leaves, which are stirred in a wok using a precise technique. It is harvested in the spring in Zhejiang province.

A gentle, powerful early season tea with a highly intense, long finish. As balanced as the finest Long Jing, with the aromatic richness to match.

In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.

To go further:
Long Jing leaves have the same shape as young shoot. Shaping these "buddha's eyelids" requires specific know-how: the leaves are mixed for around twenty minutes in a wok using a slow, precise and regular method. This very skilful work kills the enzyme in the leaves due to contact with heat, prevents oxidation and also gives the leaf its characteristic shape, as well as its aromatic profile.
