Long Jing (Shi Feng #43)
Made entirely by hand in the traditional way, this outstanding Long Jing from Shi Feng Mountain is picked from the first spring growth on old trees of the Xi Hu #43 varietal.
Long Jing is China’s classic green tea. It is available in many grades – but this is one of the very best. Made from the first flush of small spring leaves, after firing they are a mottled yellowy-green. The tea demonstrates its quality in the even ‘one bud and two leaves’ style. It produces bright golden-green liquor packed with an intensely, sweet flavour and carries a refreshing, clean aftertaste. One of the best Long Jings we have tasted.
