Longjing Tea Type B
$36.90 – $184.50
Longjing 龙井 is grown in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, which literally translates to “dragon well,” Longjing tea was granted the status of imperial tea, in the Qing dynasty by the Kangxi Emperor.
Longjing tea tastes sweet, mellow, and rounded.
Pre-Qingming Longjing tea requires it to be produced from the first spring shoots prior to the Qingming Festival (Chinese farming calendar) on the 5th of April each year. There will usually be seasonal rain for a few days during the Qingming Festival.
Indeed, after the rain, the temperature heats up, which accelerates the growth of the tea plant. When the tea bud gets too big, it starts to lose complexity in the brewed flavor, therefore, Pre-Qingming tea is considered better.

Lu'an Guapian Tea 六安瓜片 is grown in Anhui, which literally translates to “Lu'an Melon Seed tea”. Tea has been produced since 1905 and has a history of over 100 years. It is one of the ten best famous teas in China. Lu'an Melon Seed Tea uses the second leaf on the branch. Each leaf's central vein is removed and the leaves are pan-fried.
Among all the teas in the world, Lu'an Guapian is the only tea without buds and stems, made from a single leaf. The stems have been removed during the production process to ensure that the tea has a strong but not bitter taste and fragrant but not astringent.
