Xihu Longjing Green Tea(West Lake Longjing Green Tea)

Long Jing, commonly called Dragon Well, is a high quality Chinese green tea. Its name is said to come from a Chinese well in which rainwater appears to write like a dragon. Grassy and refreshing, this esteemed tea is originated from Xihu. Xihu Longjing Tea, a famous green tea in China, grows in the mountains around the Xihu Lake (West Lake) of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, including areas like Lion Mount, Longjing Mount, the Wuyun Mountain, and Hupao. It is very complex to produce Xihu Longjing Tea. Elaborate techniques are adopted during plucking and processing to ensure excellent quality.

The Pre-Qingming Longjing tea is a premium tea harvested before the Qingming Festival (April 5th), making it even more rare and valuable. Its roast chestnut aroma and fresh, grassy flavor are a testament to its quality and authenticity. But what sets this tea apart is its unique aftertaste - sweet and refreshing. This is due to a traditional technique called "Hui Gan" (回甘) that enhances the natural sweetness of the tea.
