Long Jing

Green Tea
AED 40.00

Regarded as one of the “Ten Famous Teas” of China (those teas, previously only enjoyed by the emperor), this unique and beloved green tea comes from the Zhejiang province and is pan fired or pan roasted. This gives the dry leaf a smooth, flat, sword like appearance.

There are several legends as to how Long Jing gets its name. Our favorite is – in the village of Longjing, the name of the tea is said to be a reference to a well with dense groundwater that when the rain falls, gives the impression of dragons beneath the surface much like how the tea leaves behave during brewing.
