Also called Long Jing Dragonwell. Long Jing tea is known to all Chinese because it has been around for 1500 years. It is produced in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province in China, in the mountains surrounding the village of Long Jing, southwest of West Lake (Xi Hu). Production is done in 10 steps, entirely by hand. Picked in the spring, the flat, smooth leaves are heated in the pan to stop oxidation.
They give a pale yellow liqueur, shiny and full-bodied, invigorating, fluffy, with a slightly toasted taste. An exquisite, sweet and delicate flavor, well present in the mouth with a vegetal aftertaste and a touch of bitterness.
