Experience a tea that has captured the hearts of poets, philosophers, monks, and emperors for centuries - Pre-Qingming Longjing tea. Grown in the serene West Lake area of Hangzhou, China's most famous tea is handcrafted using traditional methods that have been perfected over generations.
The Pre-Qingming Longjing tea is a premium tea that is harvested before Qingming Festival (April 5th), making it even more rare and valuable. Its roast chestnut aroma and fresh, grassy flavor are a testament to its quality and authenticity. But what sets this tea apart is its unique aftertaste - sweet and refreshing. This is due to a traditional technique called "Hui Gan" (回甘) that enhances the natural sweetness of the tea.
