Long Jing justly takes up the leading place among the first ten of the most renowned Chinese teas. The first written record of the tea from monastic plantations around the picturesque lakeXi Hu is found in manuscripts as far back as the days of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AC). During the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AC) a country residence was erected in the city of Hangzhou at behest of the emperor, and Long Jing had become the tea brought to the emperor’s court as the gift of tribute. The tea plantations are located exclusively in favorable natural conditions (fertile soils, mild climate and abundant rainfall). Processed under the unique technology of manual iron wok firyng, the tea’s yellow-green feature a straight, flattened shape and a smooth glossy surface. The aroma of the clear soft-emerald liquor is fragrant and long-lasting, reminiscent of orchid flowers. The liquor’s brisk flavor tastes fresh and carries a rich slightly sweet aftertaste.
