Description

Translated as "Dragon Well" from Chinese, Long Jing 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.
