Green Tea

Unless otherwise specified, we strongly recommend water temperature Higher Than 180F (85C) for all our green teas. Besides, most of them can handle boiling temperature well, as long as small volume (180ml/6oz.) is used without the vessel being lidded.  

Most of our teas of all categories are pure tea without any additives. Each scented teas is specified with flower or fruit material used. All our scented teas (such as jasmine green tea) are scented with real flowers or fruits, not extracts.

All our Long Jing products are directly from single estates, provided by farmer families or local farmer associations. We only selected products made with authentic Long Jing cultivars (Long Jing Jiu Keng Group or Long Jing #43), not including Wu Niu Zao or other cultivars. (See more information about Long Jing cultivars here. )

Lu Shan Yun Wu (Lu Shan Cloud Mist) 800m (2400 ft.) Early Spring First Harvest 

Manager's comments: This tea is of higher elevation and higher grade than the pre-ordered Lu Shan Yun Wu, but we cannot say it's twice as good as that one, because all our Lu Shan Yun Wu products are of very high quality and each has its unique characteristic. The price of this tea is largely due to the rarity. Considering quality/price ratio, the second harvest (down this webpage) would be a very good choice. In terms of quality, the second harvest one is already much better (and more authentic) than what most Chinese tea drinkers could find within the tea market of China. 

Lu Shan Yun Wu (Lu Shan Cloud Mist) Early Spring Second Harvest 

Out of stock. 

One of the most famous Chinese green teas whose early spring harvest is rarely found in commercial market. For this tea, we generally focus on the very small amount of first harvest each year. But it's our pleasure to make this tea accessible to more people. Although a 2nd harvest, this tea is from the first flush growth of the early spring, and was just slightly later than the first harvest. As all other Lu Shan Yun Wu products that we carry, this tea is fully manually processed.

2018 Huang Shan Mao Feng (Yellow Mountain Peak) 1400m (4200 ft.) First Day Harvest (available in sample size only)

This is very likely The Highest site for Huang Shan Mao Feng. We offer this tea at a price much lower than market average, as we obtain it directly from a tea farmer family from this remote area where there was no automobile road to facilitate convenient transportation until 2013. This year, a road has been built for this village, and tea sale would be easier for the village from now on. In spite of the higher market price of this year, the producer of this tea restrained from raising his price in order to express thanks to his buyers for years of support. Therefore, in spite of higher shipping costs and other fringing costs of this year, we keep the price same as last year.
