Dragon Well green tea, or “Long Jing”, is commonly regarded as one of China's top ten teas, and is often served to visiting heads of state. Apart from its delightfully sweet taste, with none of the bitterness that sometimes characterizes other green teas, Long Jing's significant difference from other green teas is the smooth flat appearance of the tea leaves. TeaVivre have selected a great example of this premium Long Jing tea.

Whenever you feel upset or restless, Long Jing Tea is the perfect drink to relax and calm you.

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.”

Origin

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.

In 1987, it was identified as National Improved Variety by Chinese Tea Improved Variety Examination and Approval Committee, numbered “GSCT 37”. It is flat and smooth with light green color. At the same time, it retains the Longjing’s good quality, sufficient bean flavor with some chestnut aroma. In addition, the spring tea of this tea bush has 3.7% amino acids and 18.5% tea polyphenols, which is very suitable for making flat-shape green tea.
