Long Jing

£15.00 sku LTLJG0614-100L | Net weight: 100g

Loose Leaf Green Tea

Origin

This is one of China's most famous teas, and deservedly so.  The tea, whose name translates as 'Dragon Well', comes from the Hangzhou in coastal Zhejiang Province.  Grown to the west of West Lake, the ancient and renowned tea bushes thrive in the region's humid, subtropical climate.

Tea Description

Long Jing has distinctive, flat, jade-coloured leaves that are highly aromatic. Once infused in hot water the leaves give a clear, pale yellow liquor with rewardingly complex character; initially sweet, followed by a slightly savoury popcorn flavour.

Good quality Long Jing. Has a signature taste without earthy bitterness. Even with stronger brews. I would consider it a benchmark for a good premium green tea.

Tea Tasters Club - Long Jing

The aroma is absolutely electrifying. It's definitely got one of the strongest of all green tea aromas. And the taste is refreshingly brisk and vibrant, with a very smooth, velvety length to the flavour. We're off to the Far East to experience a really beautiful cup that is also one of China's top ten green teas.
