West Lake Longjing

West Lake Longjing is one of China's famous green teas, produced in Longjing Village and its surrounding areas in the West Lake area of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

It is renowned for its unique appearance, aroma and taste. With a long history dating back to the Tang Dynasty, West Lake has been mentioned in Lu Yu's "Classic of Tea" for tea production in Hangzhou's Tianzhu and Lingyin Temple.

Longjing tea gained fame in the Song Dynasty (960-1279), improved in quality during the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), became popular among commoners in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and was even offered as a tribute in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

The picking of Longjing tea is meticulous, with premium Longjing tea harvested around the Qingming Festival. West Lake Longjing tea is known for its benefits such as refreshing the mind, quenching thirst, and reducing neutral fats and cholesterol in the blood.
