Long Jing Village

Longjing Village, one of the five producing areas of the famous West Lake Long Jing tea, surrounded by mountains, has nearly 800 mu of mountain tea plantations. It gets the name Longjing Village because the village is surrounded by mountains that are called Shi Feng Mountain. If we overlook it from a high altitude, the Shi Feng Mountain is like a dragon surrounding the whole village.

18 imperial tea

According to legend, when Emperor Qianlong went down to the south of the Yangtze River, he tasted the West Lake Long Jing Tea at the Hu Gong Temple under the Shi Feng Mountain of the Long Jing Village. After drinking, he was full of praise for it and named the 18 tea trees in front of the temple as "imperial tea".

Long Jing Quan

Longjing Quan is located on Fenghuangling of West Lake and the water will never dry up. The ancients thought that it was connected with the sea, and there was a dragon living here, so they named this spring- Dragon Well.

In addition to the famous Long Jing tea, there are plenty of scenic spots and teahouses in the Longjing Village, like Hu Gong Temple, Old Dragon Well and etc, which endow the natural village characteristic of West Lake Long Jing tea village.

History

Xihu Long Jing - West Lake Dragon Well green 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.

After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Long Jing tea was divided into three categories - Lion Peak Long Jing, Mei Jia Wu Long Jing, and the premium Xihu Long Jing selected by TeaVivre. In 1996, the West Lake village of Hangzhou city was recognized by the government as the home of Long Jing tea. In recognition of the value and quality of this tea, and the importance of the local environment and culture in its production, the government introduced special protection for this area to preserve its natural state and unique tea culture.
