Longjing, otherwise known as Dragonwell is the most famous green tea grown in China.
Our Longjing is from Hangzhou, Zhejiang, the original growing area of true Longjing green tea and is prepared the traditional way. The tea leaves are carefully pan fired in a hot wok, giving the leaf its distinctive flat shape. When brewed, the tea leaves plump up, revealing the tea shoot and the newest leaf.
This tea is the perfect green tea for those who love a mellow green tea, that is clean and smooth, without any astringency.
