Source: Longjing Village 

Farming Methods: Natural farming – EU Compliant

Production Methods: Tea Plucking-Slight withering-Frying in ten complicated steps.

This delicate, first harvest tea is plucked before April 4 or 5, prior to the arrival of the spring rains and the Qing Ming Festival. The young leaves are extra small.

Long Jing is the most famous Chinese tea and usually ranks #1 on the 10 Famous Chinese tea lists. This tea originates in the Xihu lakeside, outside the city of Hangzhou in the West Lake District.  Elmwood owner Bruce Richardson spent a week in those gardens in 2018. 

The processing of top grade Long Jing tea is almost all done in a thick iron pan and fried by hand. The seemingly simple processing is a very intricate and difficult work of art.

The first sip has the aroma and sweetness of a fresh melon. The finish is vegetative with a hint of spring asparagus. Easily yields multiple infusions.

We were only able to obtain a kilogram of this tea, mainly for our World Tea Academy tasting kits. We have a limited supply to share with our customers.
