Estate grade Lung Ching green tea

LOW CAFFEINE
BLEND NO. 1114

Dragonwell, or Lung Ching, is one of the most famous of the Chinese green teas, grown in picturesque Hangzhou, Zheijiang Province, China. Unlike steam-fired Japanese green teas that are vegetal, Lung Ching has an impeccable balance between green character and the nori-like composition found in Japanese Sencha teas. It is typically harvested several days before Qingming when the new twigs have just begun to grow (this is when you will see the coveted "one leaf and a bud" grade). The harvesting is very labour intensive; it takes up to 50,000 tender leaves to yield 1 kg of tea. Many legends surround the discovery of tea. The oldest known is this Chinese tale: One breezy day in the year 2737 BCE, in the shade of his garden, the Emperor Chen-Nung was enjoying a cup of boiled water, the hygienic custom of the day. Carried by the wind, leaves from a neighbouring bush fell into his imperial cup. They were leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant, and the Emperor experienced such a feeling of refreshment and well-being that he vowed to take a cup each day. Thus was born the custom of drinking tea.

Love this tea!

We purchased a wonderful assortment of teas to help boost our spirits as we work from home. They are fabulous! We immediately noticed the difference between the grocery store tea we had been drinking and the fresh, clean taste of the Tealeaves products.
