No tea in the teapot
Viston Longjing tea is our best loose leaf tea to experience the real premium Chinese green tea and replace your tea bags. Brew 25 cups with 50g of loose tea.
Our loose leaf Longjing tea has a buttery smoothness and a toasty flavor. It's the pride of Chinese tea makers and one of the most famous Chinese teas. It's meticulously folded during pan-firing, and the pressed leaves unfold to create a golden-jade infusion with umami flavor, the smell of toasted grass, and floral sweetness. Its richness and complexity of taste make it the ultimate green tea and a must-try for any avid tea lover.
Our Longjing tea is an authentic, premium Longjing tea, also known as "Dragon Well Tea", that's not normally found in supermarkets or, especially, tea bags. It's not the same tea that's ground up for tea bags - it's a premium green tea that's meant to be appreciated and enjoyed with the care and attention it deserves. Prepared in a teapot according to our recommendations, it will return the favor rewarding you with an exquisite cup of deeply rich, savory taste that will keep lingering in your mouth for a while.
Longjing tea is also known as "Dragon Well Tea", named by the region it comes from. Hence, real Longjing teas come from the Zhejiang region in China.

Longjing is a classical example of wok-roasted tea, and it's unique in the way that its leaves are folded and pressed.
Due to its fame, Longjing is often counterfeited and imitated. We, however, ensured that our Longjing tea is authentic and has all of the qualities expected from it.
Longjing tea deserves to be prepared in a teapot. Like most green teas it's quite delicate and requires following correct instructions:
Note: the Chinese often make the tea in a cup and drink it with leaves still in the water. That's being done for the sake of the show, but it doesn't provide the best taste.
