Long Jing Shi Feng

Lion's Peak Dragon Well
Product code: CSTV-25

Praised for the beauty of its steeping leaves and the fresh chestnut scents they give off, Long Jing is the most famous green tea in China.

Harvested in Shi Feng (original terroir), Zhejiang, this small production is masterfully created by the Tang family, with whom we have been working since 2003.

Complex aromas and smooth liquor, this grand cru combines aromatic richness and finely balanced flavours.
