  • Inside Story

    Hand crafted legendary tea which production dated back to 1,500 years ago. The tea gardens are nestled in the rolling hills that surround West Lake. Water flows from the misty hilltop and the villagers tend smallholdings of tea bushes, all of the “old variety” cultivar, which has been granted the title of the Imperial Tea Trees, during the Qing Dynasty by Emperor Qian Long. This is the most prestigious tea in China.

  • China, Zhejiang province, Hangzou, Long Jing village near West Lake

  • Ambience

    Leaf: Big, light yellow-green bud and leaf, pressed into flat shape – resembling the top of a spear - with a tiny bits of white cotton-like lumps. Aroma of Geranium, mint and creamy cashews.
    Infused leaf: Beautiful, light green & pointy bud and leaf. Aroma of sweet peas, broccoli, cucumber and cashews, very fresh.
    Liquor: Crystal clear, very light & bright yellow-green cup. Soft aroma of sweet creamy cashews and asparagus. Mouth-feel is complex, soft and astringent with notes of steamed courgettes, sweet peas, asparagus and roasted hazelnuts. After-taste is crispy green, herbaceous: thyme & peppercorns. Our Long Jing is refreshing, cooling tea with no acidity and pleasant crispy astringency. It has a long invigorating finish. A true Legend! Must try!
