Long Jin is one of the most famous Chinese teas
which is also the reason why finding a truly good Long Jin tea is becoming
increasingly difficult. Due to the high demand for this tea many farmers are
choosing production quantity over the quality, especially in the touristy areas
We have found this remarkable West Lake Long Jin tea that embodies everything you would expect from a premium Long Jin tea – a fresh aroma with a buttery smooth texture and subtle nuttiness. Crisp but soft, savoury but delicate. A truly reviving tea that carries a dose of much needed energy for mornings or early afternoons.
