Long Jing

Da 3.20 

Long Jing is a tea that needs no introduction. Its history lost in a distant past, and an unmistakable nutty flavor have made it one of the most sought after and appreciated teas at home and abroad.
The characteristic flattened needle shape is the result of specific hand movements during the cooking phase on the wok.
As with all our teas, to select our Long Jing, we were particularly careful that the cultivation made the least use of pesticides, and for this we had to move away from Xihu, Long Jing birthplace, where plantations are now making an intense use of pesticides, to go to a nearby village: Bashan, where we found excellent plantations at high altitudes.
