Lung Ching Green Tea | Qing Ming Information

Water Temperature:
Brewing Time:
1-1.5 minutes
Premium green tea
Hanzhou, China, Linan Tian Mu Shan Tea Garden

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 tender 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 wok-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.

Of the three Lung Chings you offer, I would say this one tops them. Try brewing 2 tsp. in a gaiwan starting at 20 seconds. The results: The sweet, refreshing flavor that's cooling on the tongue with a clean finish. I dare you to find one better.

Best tasting green tea

I am a life long tea drinker and have tried many teas. Elmwood Inn has the best tasting teas, and including the best customer service. I had a question about this tea, and my email was answered right away. After trying this tea, I am declaring it the best of the Lung Ching teas. After my first sip, I just wanted to sit and enjoy the flavor. It is heavenly.
