Long Jing, the most famous green tea, is known for its beautiful green leaves, delicate aroma and mellow flavour. A variety of unfermented tea, Long Jing is made of tender buds with leaves picked in the early spring. These are manually fixed by way of pan frying to stop oxidation. The finished dry leaves, shaped like sword’s blades are flat and glossy, yielding a clear, yellow-green tea infusion that is refreshing with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Calming, soothing and relaxing, Long Jing Is also a great choice after a heavy greasy meal.
