This is a full bodied long jing that tastes great!
The most famous green tea in China is Long Jing (Dragon Well) which grows in the hills around the West Lake area of Hangzhou. In fact, Long Jing has over a hundred year history as a Tribute Tea and was previously only served to emperors and high officials. While Long Jing is very popular, Shi Feng Long Jing is considered the highest quality and is from the original home of Long Jing, Shi Feng. It requires great skill to hand fry the tea buds and fresh leaves to create Long Jing’s unique flat shape. At Seven Cups, we are privileged to be the first foreign company to offer Shi Feng Long Jing directly from famous tea master Weng Shang Yi. For over sixty years, he has been only making this hand made Tribute Tea. We hope that you will enjoy the full-bodied flavor of this remarkable tea. Appreciate the light yellow green tea color and unique fresh fragrance that gently develops over many infusions. A truly remarkable tea!
