Among them, Shi Feng is the best. The tea growing area is surrounded with fog throughout the year. Shi Feng is located in Long Jing village. This place has a very long history in producing Long Jing, and there is the original tea tree that was the tribute tea for the emperor of China. Shi Feng Long Jing has a rich and complex flavor that changes as you drink. This singular tea experience is created by a combination of traditional growing practice, picking standard, and processing methods.
This picking standard is one bud to two tender leaves. Compared to our Da Fo Long Jing, Shi Feng has a deeper, nuttier flavor and a more complex aftertaste. Owing to its traditional processing, the tea's aroma is not grassy — it is an uncommon combination of gentle floral notes over a smack of toasted soybean character.
Shi Feng Long Jing is the most famous green tea in China but few have tasted the original, which grows on Shi Feng Shan in Hangzhou City around the beautiful scenic West Lake. Shi Feng Mountain is the original, most prized center of Long Jing tea production around this area.
