Longjing, Dragon Well, comes from the eastern, coastal province of Zhejiang. It originated in the Longjing Village, located along the famed West Lake, or Xi Lake. This variety is harvested in early spring, before April 4th, the date of the Qingming Festival. First flush tea, amongst the first yearly growth, are harvested before the festival and considered to be some of the finest leaves.

Pale green liquor has subtly toasted aromas with notes of nuttiness. The rich, umami flavor profile ends with a bright, buttery finish.
