Organic Green Tea Pre-Qing Ming Xi Hu Long Jing

Tea Soul

The Pre-Qing Ming Xi Hu Long Jing Organic Green Tea has been carefully selected in order to ensure a high quality product and a rich tasting experience.

In fact, many of the typical characteristics that make Long Jing unique and prized can be seen in this green tea right from its name.

First, the leaves come from gardens located near Lake Xi Hu in Hangzhou, where the selection of camellia cultivars to produce Long Jing began and developed.

The soils from which this green tea is sourced are also tended according to organic farming principles so that the quality of the final product cannot be contaminated by any altering elements.

At the taste level, however, one can be assured of a rich flavor profile by the fact that Long Jing is Pre-Qing Ming, that is, harvested before April 4. The leaves taken and processed before this date are still very young and therefore rich in aromatic polyphenols, amino acids and other elements that can return an intense taste experience in the infusion.

In tasting the Pre-Qing Ming Xi Hu Long Jing Organic Green Tea, sweet and roasted notes reminiscent of some dried fruits are mainly made evident.

This peculiar aspect of young Long Jing will also persist for a long time in the mouth without, however, preventing the expression of a herbaceous vegetable part with a refreshing tone.

To better realize the intensity of taste in this organically grown Long Jing Pre-Qing Ming you can compare the flavor of its infusion with that of the 2021 Long Jing Pre-Qing Ming Green Tea found in our offering.

Location of Origin

Hangzhou - Zhejiang, China


The Organic Green Tea Pre-Qing Ming Xi Hu Long Jing has a very traditional processing. After an initial withering in the open, the leaves are cooked in large iron woks heated to temperatures around 180°C to block enzyme activity and thus prevent oxidation of the product.

Finally, the green leaves are folded and allowed to rest so that they take on their final shape and lose some more moisture.

Infusion Method of Organic Green Tea Pre-Qing Ming Xi Hu Long Jing

We strongly recommend infusing this tea in the traditional Chinese method (Gong Fu Cha) with a gaiwan with a capacity of about 150 ml. Following this preparation, multiple infusions can be made with 5 grams of leaves that are useful to best capture all the flavor nuances of the tea.

Warm the water to a temperature of 70°C and proceed to an initial infusion of 25 seconds. Keeping the water at the same temperature, you can then continue to exploit the same leaves by adding more water and increasing the infusion time by 5 seconds each time (25 - 30 - 35...).

This tea has a longevity of 5-6 infusions.

For a more classic preparation in the Western style, we recommend 3 grams of leaves (about 2 teaspoons) in a 200 ml cup with water at 70°C for an infusion time of 2-3 minutes.

For a better tasting experience, we suggest that you strain the infusion as soon as the infusion time is over. Our suggested infusion timings, however, can also be slightly modified to your liking to achieve a more or less intense taste.

We recommend storing in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Benefits of Green Tea

The category of Green Tea is always the most named when it comes to beneficial properties.

In comparison with other types of tea, in fact, the particularly young and tender leaves from which this product is made have a high concentration of useful molecules that are easily assimilated by our bodies.

The main benefits of Green Tea infusion come from the presence of antioxidants, amino acids and caffeine. The action of these elements can lead to lower blood sugar, a reduction in cellular aging, and a decreased sense of fatigue during the day.

Green Tea therefore, if taken consistently, proves to be a good ally for our body but it is still recommended not to overdo it to avoid the intake of too much caffeine.
