After some long wait, our 2008 Pre-Ming West Lake Long Jing finally is arriving. As expected, quality of this year's production is better. After some careful tasting, we picked the premium batch harvested in the early harvest period of March 27 to 30, 2008. This years' cold weather delayed West Lake Long Jing harvest by more than 10 days, which in turn shorted the harvest period of this year's pre-Ming Long Jing, which ended on April 5.
We are very pleased with this batch. All tender leaves from first flush, very refreshing, purified taste. Another great West Lake Long Jing from renowned Tea Research Institute of Zhangzhou!
We have both Long Jing #43 and Long Jing Varietal for your to choose from at our online store .
