From JK Tea Shop

This is a rare Long Jing with strongest Chaqi from an abandoned tea field for over 30 years. It is directly purchased from the local tea farmer in the high mountain over 1300 meters high; During the tea-picking days, our pickers need to get up at around 3 AM in early morning and walk around 2.5 hours mountain road to this abandoned tea field; The tea bushes are wild-growing too tall, with average over 1.5 meters high; for some extremely high, the pickers have to cut down some branches to pluck the buds.

Picked only one time per year and never cut down the branches, plus the natural good environment, this wild-growing Long Jing enjoys the strongest Chaqi among other Long Jing, which can also be told by its big, fat buds than other Long Jing. This Long Jing has a strong chestnut aroma mixed with ligh orchid fragrance. Thick but delicate tea taste with rich mouth feeling after sipping the tea liquid.

During Long Jing’s two making process, Sha Qing(killing the enzyme), and Huo Guo(making the shape and taste), it requires to put little tea wax on the wok to conduct the two process to avoid the tea leaves getting burnt.

All of our green tea is stored in the freezer before handing to our clients. Super freshness and high quality.
