Also known as Shi Feng Dragon Well. One of the most famous Tribute Tea since Qing Dynasty. Grown in Shi Feng Mountain, Hangzhou, Zhenjiang Province. Longjing tea was granted the status of Gong Cha (Tribute Tea) in Qing Dynasty by Chinese emperor Kangxi.
Kangxi's grandson Qianlong visited West Lake. He went to the Hu Gong Temple under the Lion Peak Mountain and was presented with a cup of Longjing tea. In front of the Hu Gong Temple were 18 tea bushes. Emperor Qianlong was so impressed by the Longjing tea produced here that he conferred these 18 tea bushes special imperial status. The trees are still living and the tea they produce is auctioned annually.
It has a yellow-green colour with a gentle pure aroma and a rich flavor. The tea contains Vitamin C, amino acids, and has one of the highest concentration of catechins among teas, second only to white teas.
The pretty amber greenish colour leaves provides an elegant fresh fragrance, bold nutty aroma, and very smooth mellow taste. The delicate fragrance is very long-lasting, and the bright liquor gives a refreshing, brisk, mellow, and pleasant sweet toasty aftertaste.
