Description

What is Organic Longjing tea?

There are various definitions of Longjing; however, a common definition is that authentic Longjing at least has to come from the Zhejiang province in China, with the most conservative definition restrict the type to the various villages and plantations in the West Lake area in Hangzhou. It has a history of more than 1200 years. It was served to the imperial family as imperial tea since the Qing Dynasty.
Premium Longjing tea is flat, smooth, and straight, with a tender green color, fresh and sweet taste. Longjing tea harvested before the Qingming Festival is referred to as Pre-Qingming Longjing or Pre-Qingming Dragonwell, and the one harvested before the rainy season GuYu is called Pre-Yu Longjing or Pre-Yu Dragonwell.

Organic Longjing tea, also known as Dragonwell tea, is a type of green tea that is produced in the Longjing village of Hangzhou, China. It is considered one of the most famous and prized green teas in China, and is often referred to as the “national drink” of the country. Longjing tea is known for its delicate flavor and aroma, as well as its distinctive flat, emerald-green leaves.

To be considered organic, Longjing tea must be grown and processed according to strict guidelines that prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Instead, organic farmers rely on natural methods of pest control and use organic fertilizers to nourish the tea plants. This results in a tea that is free of chemical residues and is considered healthier and more environmentally friendly than conventionally grown tea.
