Long Jing Grad 1 - Zhejiang

China

This is Lung Ching, Dragon Source. It is made in the hills around the old city of Hangzhou, in Zhejiang Province on the Yangzi River delta. Many of the ancient temples around Hangzhou were famous for their tea plantations, and tea became highly sought after during the Ming Dynasty. A famous source, Hupao (the Tiger Spring) was situated close to the Long Jing cultivations, and people travelled from afar to drink Long Jing prepared from Tiger water in the scenic surroundings.

 

The first harvest, in late March and early April, gives more tender shoots, greater sweetness, less bitterness, and a fresh rich taste. The tea is especially suitable as an aperitif. The water temperature should be around 80 degrees. As with many other green teas, the leaves are used at least 2-3 times, and the tea is at its best the second time you pour the water.
