Tea Farmer

Ms Liao, who has been in the organic tea industry for about ten years, went through the arduous process of founding an organic tea plantation from scratch. After several years of hard work and development, the organic tea garden is now fully established, and has earned USDA, EU, and JAS organic certifications to ensure the healthy quality of the tea.

Origin

This Organic Dragon Well Long Jing tea comes from Tianmu Mountain, located in Lin’an, in the northwest of Zhejiang Province, 84 km from Hangzhou. In Chinese, “Tianmu” means “Heavenly Eyes”. Tianmu Mountain got its poetic name from two pools, one on the east peak (elevation of 1480 m) and one on the west peak (elevation of 1506 m). The two pools look like eyes that are gazing at the sky.

With an elevation of 300 m to 1556 m, Tianmu Mountain is well known for its forest ecosystem and landscape which are typical of subtropical regions.

Tea Bush

The fresh tea leaves are from tea plants of the Jiukeng species, also called Jiukeng Big-leaf. This variety of tea plant was originally found in Chun’an, Kaihua, in Zhejiang Province, and Shexian in Anhui Province. In the 1950s, it was introduced to tea-growing areas all around Zhejiang. In 1985 it was verified as a national species with number GS13023-1985 by the National Crop Variety Certification Committee. The dry leaves of the spring tea from this species contain about 3.4% amino acid, 20.9% tea polyphenols, 13.3% catechin and 4.1% caffeine, which makes them well suited for producing green tea.

History

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. During the reign of Emperor Shunzhi in the Qing Dynasty, the Emperor’s love for this tea meant that it was frequently presented by petitioners as a royal tribute.

To be famous and flourish, it is based on the good quality and long history and culture of Longjing tea.
