The eastern province of Zhejiang is famous for Lung Ching tea, which has been grown at the western lake Xihu near the city of Longjing ever since the time of the Tang dynasty. Also known as the "Dragon Fountain Tea" following a legend about a rain-bringing dragon, it was awarded the highest possible title: "Tea of the Emperor". Its taste gives you an idea why. It is light, a little sweet and fruity without losing the classical green tea character. The top quality, organically grown leaves are carefully dried by hand in pans after wilting thus preserving their flat, emerald-green appearance.
Brewing Guide: Two level teaspoons per cup and steep for 1 - 3 minutes in 75°C water.
