Information for tea connoisseurs

King of Chinese green tea Dragon Well tea - also referred to as Long Jing or Lung Ching - is the national drink of China. It is frequently presented as a greeting gift to visiting heads of state. Dragon Well is well regarded amongst the green tea lovers and ranks as the finest amongst the ten famous Chinese teas.

Our supreme version of Dragon Well tea is derived from Xifeng Village, West Lake Region, Zhejiang Province, China. Here, it is meticulously dried by hand using a traditional pan-firing method. Fêted as the ‘Tea of the Emperor’, this stunning blend affords a pale and illuminating yellow liquor with the most gentle and pure aroma.

West Lake Region: True Long Jing tea comes from the West Lake district on the outskirts of Hangzhou in Zhejiang. The pinyin for West Lake is XiHu so you may see some Long Jing referred to as Xihu Long Jing. This area is a designated protected zone.

Within the West Lake area are the four original Long Jing tea villages of which the best known are Xifeng (aka Shi Feng or Lion Peak) and Mejiawu. The best quality Long Jing is generally accepted as growing in the area of Xifeng.
