Our imperial pre Qing Ming Big Buddha Dragon Well is a most delicious Long Jing tea.

Pre Qing Ming or before Ching Ming means that the tea is picked in the premium early picking season and requires the tea to be produced from the first shoots prior to the Qing Ming festival on or around the 5th April.

According to the Chinese Farming Calendar there is a national holiday between the 4th and 6th of April and thereafter it starts to rain. And, after the rain the temperature starts to increase causing the tea plants to grow faster. If the the bud gets too big it loses flavour. The tender buds give a range of complex and delicate flavours and produce some of the most highly prized tea. Qing Ming tea is considered superior in every way. 

Our Qing Ming tea was harvested on the 29th March 2020 in Xingchang county and is extremely rare because of the short harvest period.

There is a long history of tea cultivation and consumption in this area which began centuries ago to provide tea to the resident monks and scholars at the Dafo Buddhist Temple which was constructed in the Fourth century. Also known as Dafo Long Jing it is well known for its ‘four wonders’, its beautiful flat leaf, pleasant green jade colour, aromatic flavour and mellow taste. We have selected this Dafo Long Jing because of the ideal climate and terrain and the extremely skilled tea producers.

With a clean, refreshing aroma, this is a tea to be sipped and enjoyed as a fine wine.

Our tea is sold in multiple packs of 50g.
