From Mei Leaf

From Mei leaf:->

Kaihua Longding is a relatively new tea grown in the famed Green tea wonderland of Zhejiang province (home to Long Jing and Anji Bai Cha). Kaihua is actually located at the source of the Qianjiang river – a beautiful location close to the borders of Jiangxi and Anhui (both highly regarded tea producing provinces).
Kaihua Longding was supposedly introduced into the area by cultivating this Jiu Keng Zhong tea variety in the 1950’s. Despite over 50 years of production it is relatively unknown which is crazy because it is such a delicious tea.
The picking is super fine (bud and one leaf) and the leaves will happily bob up and down vertically in water which in China is a demonstration of top grade needle shape tea.
