LongJing Green Tea is one of the world's best known green teas. Originating from the Eastern Province of ZheJiang, LongJing has a distinct flattened leaf, sweet aroma and smooth taste.

We are pleased to bring our customers this rather special LongJing green tea. From the same team that bought us our 2016 Long Jing Green tea, this tea comes from another of their organic tea gardens and is harvested from the local cultivar, Long Jing #13. This year's tea combines a traditional appearance and great depth of flavour, with a wonderfully roasted aroma.

 

The tea garden is managed by a team of passionate tea experts and adheres to international organic standards. The tea plants are originally planted during the communist times of 1960s-1970s.

Tea Production

The majority of Zhejiang's tea production is dedicated to green teas such as Long Jing (Dragon Well), and Anji White tea (a green tea, but called white due to pigmentation of leaf) is another famous tea from this area.

Zhejiang possesses a more temperate climate than its southern neighbour Fujian, a fact reflected in its focus on green tea production; with cooler winters and a noticeably less volatile summer, tea production is at its peak before and after Qingming. Although in recent years there has been a trend to expand the tea season as many tea farmers have begun to experiment producing different tea types. Where previously tea bushes were pruned back after the end of the Spring growing season, tea farmers are now picking later in the season and producing black teas.
