Harvested in late March 2021 in Lin’an, Hangzhou, our organic Pre-Qingming Longjing tea offers buttery sweet orchid notes and a light chestnut flavor. Due to its picking period—just before the Qingming festival—and its small-batch pan-roasting process, this tea is often regarded as the ultimate pure green tea.

Absolute fantastic! Quintessential Chinese green tea.
Love it. Light fragrance, yet the complex of flavors makes for a bright morning cup. Less nutty than others I've had, and I've quickly come to prefer it this way (maybe that's the notes of chestnut?). Will definitely try to get more before it sells out!
