Long Jing means "Dragon Well" in Chinese.
It is one of the most popular green teas in China. The plants grow on the upper slopes of the Tieh Mu mountains.
The tea can be recognized by the way it is folded into a characteristic sword-like shape.
It has a delicate fragrance, a slightly sweet flavor and a silky texture. The liquor is velvety and its chestnut aroma lingers for a long time in the mouth.
Tea and food pairings:
Try the delicious pairing of Long Jing with fish such as cod, dogfish, or monkfish. For cheese lovers, it perfectly pairs with goat cheese, such as Crottin.
Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
