Long Jing has been one of the most famous teas in China for a long time. This marvelous tea has been described in Lu Yu's Cha Ching (The Classic of Tea) as the four perfections - perfect color, taste, fragrance and shape. During the Qing Dynasty, Emperor Kang Xi was known to travel from the Forbidden City just to get a taste of the freshest Long Jing. This emperor grade Long Jing is made using very fine, first flush tea leaves.

Other names:

Emperor Dragonwell, Emperor Lung Ching


Emperor Long Jing has a soothing aroma and flavor. The taste is smooth, delicate and highly refreshing with a sweet floral aftertaste.


Fresh green and evenly sized, flat tea leaves. One bud, one to two leaves variety.


Xin Chang, Zhejiang Province, China

Harvest Period:

Spring 2015 (First Flush)

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 75°c (158°F) to 85°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can use glass-based or porcelain tea ware.

Beautiful leave appearance and aroma. It has a very smooth taste but seems softer than xi hu long jing and doesnt last for as many infusions, still a very nice tea.

Very good craftsmanship overall on this tea. Small leaves with a yellowish green color and quite a bit of down for Long Jing. The dry leaf aroma is fresh, toasty, and biscuity, reminiscent of Pocky sticks for me. The liquor also has a distinct toasty flavor from the pan frying and the sweet aftertaste that is a mark of quality Long Jing. I start with 1 tsp. in a 3oz. gaiwan and add 170F water, steeping for about 1 min. One minor defect I noticed in my last cup was that a few of the leaves appeared burnt on the edges, not sure if this was just a fluke though.

My favourite Long Jing, beats the rest of the others hands down, although they're not half bad either.

The first serious green tea I've ever tried. A very pleasing, complicated bouquet, somewhere between spicy and fruity. It has a warming, full flavour, perhaps even rich. The second infusion remains warm, palatable and pleasing.

If truth be told vie been looking forward to this one the most, partially because I'm a big time long jing fan, but also because i have had a lot of long jing this year so i was eager to try tea springs chief offering. As with all my reviews ill start with the dry leaf form. This is the smallest leafed LJ i have had in the last two years, tiny perfectly formed and symmetrically pressed leaves with a beautiful golden yellow colour. The leaves are also covered in a wonderful golden down, not ever seen this much down on a LJ before, its not amazing down like a bi luo chun or a yin zhen but it's impressive. First brew and tea has come out clear! Ie hot water. Oh dear me thinks, this maybe the joke of long jings me thinks. Looking into the wet leaves i can see almost all are still dry! This is an exceptionally flattened LJ, exceptionally produced I have to say. But it has produced just clear water, what's wrong? When i tasted it however Ahhhh, what a great taste! What a surprising strong ta

A wee bit too vegetal for me, but a lovely floral nose and new mown hay flavour. Smooth refreshing. I know it may seem odd, but, I really enjoy this tea cool, especially in the warmth of early summer. The middle infusions were very asparagus-y; yet it became, softer, rounder and sweeter toward the finish. A thick, grassy mouth-feel, without astringency or bitterness. Tender, vulnerable leaves. This tea must be drunk quickly. I hasten to think the gentility of the flavour may dull.

Disappointing, have been ordering the regular Long Jing for months and thought I would treat myself. I did not find this tea to be any better, perhaps even less flavor.

This tea is wonderful. I've looked in tea shops throughout the NY/NJ area, including "Chinatown", and can't find anything that comes close!

The leaf sets of this long jing are really stunning in form and color. The aroma is fresh and vibrant. This really is a very nice long jing. I find that in addition to using enough leaf, the tea desires a longer brewing time and a hotter temperature to elicit its full delicious flavor.
