Long Jing (also known as ‘Dragonwell’) is both China’s most illustrious and most faked green tea. Our Long Jing Xi Hu is not only exceptionally delicious, it is also the genuine article: processed entirely by hand, and using a high grade harvest from hundred year old tea trees grown on Yangmei mountain (near the West Lake) as raw materials. Its heady perfume of toasted hazelnuts and peanuts, asparagus, cocoa butter, and fragrant orchid is at once intoxicating and invigorating. A stimulating tonic that promotes wakefulness and concentration, this tea is tailor made for anyone seeking to overcome any particularly taxing intellectual task!
