This is China's most famous tea and simply the best of all Long Jing variety. Xi Hu Long Jing has more than a thousand years of recorded history and was mentioned in the first ever tea book (Cha Ching) by Lu Yu during the Tang Dynasty. So popular that even Queen Elizabeth II, former US President Richard Nixon, and Henry Kissinger once tasted this tea during their visit to China. Lion (Shi) is one of the most famous brand in Hang Zhou for Xi Hu Long Jing. This brand name has become a synonym for quality Xi Hu Long Jing. The tea leaves are from the second degree protected farms within the designated 168 sq km of Xi Hu area, thus the price is much more affordable. Now, everyone can enjoy China's number one tea.

Other names:

Lion Brand West Lake Dragonwell, Shi Pai Xi Hu Lung Ching


The pleasant aroma is refreshingly light with a hint of fruit and nut combined. The aftertaste is almost instantaneous, filling your mouth with a sweetness reminiscence of grape fruit.


Exquisite flat and narrow emerald green tea leaves. 1 bud and 1 to 2 leaves variety. The tea leaves easily sink to the bottom of the cup during infusion.


Xi Hu, Zhejiang Province, China

Harvest Period:

Spring 2015 (Ming Qian Cha)

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.

One of the best all round Long Jing i have had for a few years. It doesn't have that amazing cereal complexity of the emperor lj. This lj is far broader in taste, in fact it seems to have a little of every type of LJ i have ever tried! Incredibly complex, organic evolution throughout the brews. Will certainly buy again.

This is an excellent multifaceted Long Jing that makes a very smooth brew that is strongly aromatic with a nutty full-mouth feel flavor. Highly recommended -- I prefer this over ChineseTeaArt's "Emperor" Longjing.

Been buying this one for the last 12 months. Have always liked it up till now. Was very surprised that it didn't come in the original Shi Feng packaging like it did in the past. The tea itself is fragmented into smaller pieces. One bud to 2-3 leaves instead of the usual 1bud to 1-2 leaves. Taste wise, it's too light.

A little more cereal than last years. Still not as cereal as emperor LJ of this year. This LJ has a beautiful fruity/citrus character that makes it a very refreshing green. I think I still prefer the emperor slightly.

It has a nice, pleasant aroma and a 'nutty' taste. A very good Long Jing indeed.
