Longjing (Dragon Well) tea is one of China’s most famous green teas with a history that goes back centuries—a tea that was immortalised in the poetry of Emperor Qianlong in the Qing dynasty. Our Pre-Qingming Longjing has a creamy nuttiness combined with a bright grassy freshness characteristic of Chinese green teas. Made of tender new leaves, this green tea leaves a powerfully sweet aftertaste (回甘) long after you’ve finished drinking it.

We called this batch "Curly Longjing" because the leaves are not as flat as the classic Longjing tea. This is due to the individual processing preference of the family who made this small-batch, homegrown tea. 

Grandpa style (Drinking glass)
2g | 150-200ml | 80°C

Gongfu style (Gaiwan)
4g | per 100ml | 80°C | 1 min
+10s per steep for at least 3 steeps

Western style (Teapot)
3g | per 100ml | 80°C | 3mins
+1 min per steep for at least 2 steeps

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
