Longjing has been grown in Hangzhou, China, for more than a thousand years. It’s the Cadillac of Chinese tea: delicate, highly prized, difficult to harvest and beautiful to drink. Each leaf needs to be grown under just the right conditions, picked in the foggy Zejiang foothills during spring’s first flush, still moist with morning dew. Too much sun and the young buds lose their fragrance. Longjing’s flavour is mellow and distinctly vegetal: a big mouthful of lush spinach, wet grass and spring chestnuts - like a cool breeze on your tongue.
Ingredients: Certified organic green tea
Serving suggestion: Add 1-2 teaspoons and brew in 80-85ºC water for 2-3 minutes. Steeping longer intensifies the flavour.
