A Long Jing from the gorgeous environment of the Thousand Island Lake
One of the most famous of Chinese green teas, and indeed of Chinese teas altogether, Longjing is a pinnacle of the refinement that has been going on for centuries in tea, and this Longjing is itself a further refinement of the varietal (often translated as Dragonwell), boasting a balanced, sweet flavour in addition to its characteristic vegetal and chestnut notes.
It is sourced from a small Zhejiang green tea plantation located in the gorgeous environment of the Thousand Island Lake.
With multiple plucking, the earlier harvest has had its milder flavours complemented by a light roasting, bringing forth the delicious sweetness present in the small, young leaves, along with a heady floral note rarely found in Longjing. And with such an exquisite flavour, the crownlike form of the stacked leaves may let one feel the royal pleasure of this queen of green teas.
