Shi Feng Long Jing originated in the Longjing village near Hangzhou located in the Zhejiang Province of China. It was considered to be an imperial tea by the Kangxi Emperor of Qing dynasty. The tea is also known as Lion’s Peak Dragon Well Tea, as Dragon Well is located close to Longjing village.
This Shi Feng Long Jing is an early spring harvest that results in a tender, young plucking. The liquor is a pale yellow, with a soft, sweet chestnut aroma. The crisp body is delicately nutty, quite complex, with a flickering hint of sweet grass and apricot blossoms.
