Loose Leaf Green Tea
This is one of China's most famous teas, and deservedly so. The tea, whose name translates as 'Dragon Well', comes from the Hangzhou in coastal Zhejiang Province. Grown to the west of West Lake, the ancient and renowned tea bushes thrive in the region's humid, subtropical climate.
Long Jing has distinctive, flat, jade-coloured leaves that are highly aromatic. Once infused in hot water the leaves give a clear, pale yellow liquor with rewardingly complex character; initially sweet, followed by a slightly savoury popcorn flavour.
