One of China’s most revered green teas, Longjing is grown only in the hills around Hangzhou. The elegant spear-like leaves are rolled and wok-fired by hand to produce a deliciously fragrant tea that is fresh with the aroma of chestnuts, green leaves and honey.

Enjoy:  Midday to after dinner.

Brewing:  Pour water at 70-80 degrees (1/4 cold to ¾ boiling) into a pot and add one heaped teaspoon of leaf per cup.  Infuse 1-2 mins.  Able to withstand two infusions.  Serve as is.

Ingredients:  Green tea.
