Description

The tea garden from which we source our Supreme West Lake Long Jing is located high within the mountains of Hangzhou. For generations, the family that works this land has crafted exceptional Dragonwell tea by hand, using completely organic farming methods, and following pan-firing techniques handed down from one generation to the next.

This batch is picked from the very tender first spring shoots. Each tea leaf was meticulously hand-picked in late March, then just as carefully roasted by hand on wood fired pans.

Our Supreme Long Jing tea offers a subtler and grassier high-quality finish than mainstream Long Jing tea picked later in the season. These flat and smooth special-grade tea leaves (resembling light pale green pine needles) brew a tea with a pale green color, wonderfully fragrant scent, and a refreshing floral taste.

Excellent tea. I have been trying lots of different dragon well teas (at least 9), and this ranks up there with the best of what I have tried so far. This is pre Qing Ming, and also from West Lake (Xihu) region. The price is very reasonable for the quality.

This Long Jing is by far the highest quality I have come across. You won’t be disappointed.

I have been trying to convert from coffee to green tea and this particular tea made it easy. It is delicious and delivers a slight caffeine boost, but not too much. I get 3 pours out of 1 heaping teaspoon. It may be my imagination, but when I am working, I sip it and I feel more productive and balanced. I value that it's organic.

One of the best tasting Dragon Well teas I have tried. I get good flavor for 3 infusions. It may be a bit pricey, but to my taste buds it is well worth it!
