This unique Long Jing green tea is made from the Wu Niu Zao cultivar which sprouts earlier in the season than the classic Qunti and #43 cultivar.

Compared to the other Long Jing cultivars, the tea leaves of the Wu Niu Zao cultivar have a slightly greener appearance and the tea leaves' shape is shorter and thicker.

The aroma is true delight and unlike any Longjing we've tried so far. While the classic Long Jing and #43 cultivars tend to be more light in flavour, the Wu Niu Zao cultivar produces a stronger and more robust Long Jing tea. Our Wu Niu Zao longjing features a complex aroma palette of nuts, beans, milk and grass. It's also characterised by a refreshing and well balanced bitterness that quickly transforms into a sweet after taste. This tea also offers excellent endurance allow you to brew up to 15 steeps when applying the gongfu tea method.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
