Green tea is an unoxidized tea originating in China and has the longest history of any tea. It has been praised for centuries for its healing and soothing properties. In general, there are four types of green tea based on how the tea master stops the oxidation process. The traditional way is hand frying tea buds and young fresh leaves picked during early spring in a large wok. These teas are considered the best quality and contain the highest nutrition (i.e. Shi Feng Long Jing, ). The most popular way to process green tea is by baking (i.e. Gunpowder) which allows for a larger quantity of tea. The third way is by steaming (i.e. Sencha). The fourth way is drying by sunshine. This tea is mostly consumed by locals and is rarely on the market. If you would like to try this flavor we recommend drinking young green puer cakes. While green tea is produced in over eighteen Chinese provinces, there are a few famous green tea areas from which we have selected our fine green teas. Since there are many types of green tea, take time to find the best aroma and flavor based on your personal preference.
Shi Feng Long Jing (Shi Feng Dragon Well)
Description:The most famous green tea in China is Long Jing (Dragon Well) which grows in the hills around the West Lake area of Hangzhou. In fact, Long Jing has over a hundred year history as a Tribute Tea and was previously only served to emperors and high officials. While Long Jing is very popular, Shi Feng Long Jing is considered the highest quality and is from the original home of Long Jing, Shi Feng. It requires great skill to hand fry the tea buds and fresh leaves to create Long Jing’s unique flat shape. We are privileged to be the first foreign company to offer Shi Feng Long Jing directly from famous tea master Weng Shang Yi. He has been making only thin handmade Tribute Tea for the last sixty years. We hope that you will enjoy the full-bodied flavor of this remarkable tea.
