17' ROYAL LONG JING
The first picking of spring shoot makes premium Long Jing tea, which is best served before the Qing Ming Festival. The best Long Jing tea is produced in the Xi Hu (West Lake) area of Hangzhou, and the variety introduced by Purple Cane is of exceptional quality.
In the Spring of 2017, Purple Cane launched the specially-made ‘Royal Long Jing’, a competition grade premium tea exquisitely packed in a custom-made Malaysian pewter tea caddy. This is a limited edition tea commemorating Purple Cane’s 30th anniversary.
Long Jing, the most famous green tea, known for its green colour, mellow taste, delicate aroma, and beautiful shape. It is a variety of unfermented tea. Using only tender buds picked at early spring, fresh leaves are fixed to stop oxidation with pan frying by hand. The finished dry leaves, appear to be sword blades in shape, flat and glossy, produce a clear, yellow-green tea infusion with an aromatic fresh flavour and slightly sweet aftertaste. It helps ease digesting after a heavy, greasy meal, and is valued for its health-promoting benefits.
