Tea Farmer

Mr. Kong has been involved in the tea industry for more than ten years, and focuses on providing high-quality teas to tea lovers and on producing increasingly natural, safe, and healthy teas. When asked how he feels about tea culture, he told us: “Tea culture is a concept which is different for people in different areas. Although it is complex, one thing is for sure: just like managing any other enterprise, tea culture also needs to be managed to keep up with the fast pace of development in the modern world.”


Longjing tea is a famous green tea produced in central Zhejiang. It does not specifically refer to the tea produced in Longjing Village, Hangzhou, but includes tea from multiple production areas. According to different places of origin, it is divided into three types: West Lake Longjing, Qiantang Longjing, and Yuezhou Longjing. This tea is produced in Qiantang District. The Qiantang production area is surrounded by "three rivers and one lake", namely Qiantang River, Fuchun River, Xin'an River and Qiandao Lake. The vegetation coverage is wide, the water source is high-quality, and the soil is rich in nutrients. The tea trees produced in this ecology are of high quality, and the tea produced here is also deeply loved by the public.


Tea Bush

The Longjing Qunti tea tree species, the oldest Long Jing species in record, is also called “Lao Cha Peng” or “Tu Cha Ye” by the local tea farmers, able to be traced back to the Tang Dynasty Long Jing tea made from this kind of species is characteristic in its mellow fragrance, and slightly bitter yet sweet aftertaste.

Long Jing tea has a long, distinguished history of over 1200 years. During the Ming Dynasty it became very popular and was listed as one of the top-grade teas in China; then during the reign of Emperor Shunzhi of the Qing Dynasty, the emperor’s love for this tea meant it was frequently presented by petitioners as a royal tribute.

After the founding of the PRC, Long Jing was divided into three categories: “Lion Peak”, “Mei Jia Wu”, and the premium “Xihu” Long Jing that we sell. In 1996 the West Lake village of Hangzhou City was recognized by the government as the hometown of Long Jing tea, and in recognition of the value and quality of this tea as well as the importance of the environment and culture to its production, the government also introduced special protections for the area to preserve its natural state and unique tea culture.
