Long Jing

Dragonwell

The tea is savoury and nutty and with a long-lasting slightly sweet palate. Long Jing is one of China’s ten most famous teas.

Origin: Xi Feng (Lion Peak), Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China

Cultivar: Camellia sinensis sinensis

20 cups per 50g pack  |  16p per cup (based on 3 infusions)

Our authentic Long Jing is grown in the area around West Lake (Xi Hu) in Hangzhou. Due to Long Jing’s popularity but limited production zone, the style is made elsewhere, but it is only the unique terroir of the Hangzhou area that produces the chestnut character and velvet like texture of true Long Jing.

One bud and a leaf are picked early in spring, before the rains and rising temperatures speed growth and reduce quality. The delicate leaves are pan-fired and pressed flat into the iconic spear shape. The dried leaves are a yellow-green colour. The full aromas are nutty and toasty, and the flavour is soft rich and toasty, with some sweetness.

Brewing Guidelines


Use 2.5g (about 1tbsp) per 150ml. Infuse 2-3 times for 1-2 minutes. Water temperature should be about 70°C.
