From ChineseTeaArt.com

This is China’s most famous tea and simply the best of all Long Jing variety. Xi Hu Long Jing has more than a thousand years of recorded history and was mentioned in the first ever tea book (Cha Ching) by Lu Yu during the Tang Dynasty. So popular that even Queen Elizabeth II, former US President Richard Nixon, and Henry Kissinger once tasted this tea during their visit to China. Lion (Shi) is one of the most famous brand in Hang Zhou for Xi Hu Long Jing. This brand name has become a synonym for quality Xi Hu Long Jing. The tea leaves are from the second degree protected farms within the designated 168 sq km of Xi Hu area, thus the price is much more affordable. Now, everyone can enjoy China’s number one tea.
