25 gr. Signature Pack
Just like our Imperial Harvest Longjing, this mesmerizing tea is created from the original Dragon Well cultivar, dating back to Qing dynasty (1644-1911). This brand-new version is made using the fresh buds and the second or third apical leaves - yi ya er san ye 一芽二三叶 - giving this tea a sweeter and more natural aroma. With each new infusion, a precious floral bouquet fills the air with a mesmerizing scent, starting a sensorial journey that brings us to an Imperial garden, where Dahlias and Gardenias gracefully bloom, living in the palate a lingering scent of pineapple sage and lemon verbena.
Unlike Cultivar 43, this Longjing cultivar is rare and its production scarce. The dry leaves do not appear to be in a homogeneous form, but nevertheless they maintain their traditional flattened shape. The great variety of aromas and flavors makes this tea a true paradise for the most refined palates, and a great choice for a refreshing springtime tea.
