Our pre-Qingming Long Jing or, Dragon Well, organic green tea comes from Lin An, a mountain village about 30 miles from the famous West Lake. The tea has the characteristic vegetal and nutty notes in a good balance.  

Dragon Well is one of the most celebrated green teas of China. It is also called Long Jing and comes in many grades. Our batch is among the premium grade. Tea harvested in early spring before Qingming festival (15th day after spring equinox), is sought after for its delicate and refined notes.

Long Jing, Pre-Qingming 2022 - Organic Green Tea

It is an excellent tea for people who are looking to try new things. It has a very light flavor, but refreshing overall.

14 Items

On November 27 I purchased 14 items, 8 teas, some for myself and some to give as gifts, and also 5 other items to give as gifts, and one tea infuser for myself. I don't have the time to collect reviews from the people who receive the gifts, and to write reviews for all of these individually. What I can say quickly is that I love the tea infuser. It fits nicely on my wide tea mug and it easy to clean. Thank you for time you spent showing me your beautiful new shop, and for advising me on several of the items. I recently read an article saying that Happy Earth Tea is the best tea shop in the world!! What an honor. Congratulations! We are so fortunate to have you so close by. Estelle M. Hahn
