Artisan Pan Firing Imparts Nuances of Chestnut in Our Long Jing Cha...

Flattened in a hot wok as they are pressed down by hand, these tea leaves toast on the hot wok surface as part of the very unique local artisan processing technique of Long Jing Village...A Chestnut aroma results in the wet tealeaves while the broth offers a pleasing bright light yellow color and a smooth pleasing green tea flavor.



One of the Ten Famous Tea of China, from Hangzhou Zhejiang Province. Wok-firing flattens and toasts these leaves resulting in a captivating vegetal-chestnut aroma. Unlike other China pan-fired green teas, this one of the Ten Famous Teas of China's "wok-firing" flattens and toasts the leaves resulting in unique and captivating tea drinking experience.

In this unique case, the leaves are gradually flattened by hand as the leaves are skillfully stirred and tossed in the hot wok both arresting the oxidation and "setting" the character by toasting the leaf surface. This technique produces a enchanting roasted chestnut nuance that blends with the delicate vegetal aroma of the leaf material.

The process begins with plucking of the classic two leaves and a bud, taken in the spring when the leaves are at their most abundant ingredient content.

True artisan technique developed and refined over generations of dedicated tea growers yields a most unusual and elating green tea experience.

In Long Jing village (Dragon Well village), it is said that the tea is at its very best when steeped with the mineral-rich water from the mountain-spring-fed well which gave this region its name long ago...Long Jing, or Dragon Well.

The water is so mineral-rich that the local people there say when you fill your teacup with the Dragon Well Water it will extend above the top rim of the cup.

Long Jing delights us with its distinct character resulting from the select leaves and the skilled technique of processing them into award-winning tea. A must for all those that enjoy green teas.
