Long Jing

superior

The distinctive, flattened buds of Long Jing, often known as Dragonwell, are renowned for their chestnut flavour. Superior examples such as this offer more: a full, vegetal body, like cooked asparagus or spinach, nevertheless remains as bright and fresh as its leaves appear, graced by a buttery mouthfeel. Sourced from Zhejiang near the beautiful Thousand Island Lake, the softening leaves floating in a glass pitcher may suggest nothing so much as the vibrant colours and unusual forms of this neighbouring landscape, while its rich aromas waft toward the nose, infusion after infusion.

For a more affordable and roasted version, consider our Long Jing Classic.
