Longjing or ‘Dragon Well’ honours the acclaimed water hole outside of Hangzhou, China. Originating from the same region, this blend follows a customary practice where the slender leaves are hand-picked, pressed in a heated wok and eventuate to a flat form. Assembled, this infusion offsets a roasted and savoury scent.

Produced by unfermented leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, green tea does not go through the oxidation process as does Oolong and back tea.
Instead, heat is applied to the leaves to neutralise the oxidative enzymes before oxidation is able to take effect. The resulting liquor of the infused green tea is typically light and pale in colour, often with a green hue.

Select your brewing vessel and preheat with hot water. Obtain quality water and fill your kettle, setting it to 181°F.
Weigh ½ tsp (1.6g) per 4 fl oz of Green Longjing, ensuring you add the leaves first, before following with water.
Pour & Time
Upon pouring, set your timer to ensure you steep 2 ⅓ mins.
After the timing is finished, separate the infused leaf from the tea liquor by removing the infuser or transferring the tea to a second pot through a strainer.
Your tea should have a strong aroma reflecting it’s flavour. Serve optionally with tray and appropriate teaware.
