Longjing green tea (西湖龙井), sometimes known by its direct English translation of dragon well. Produced in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. It is pan-fried soon after it is picked, and often picked by hand. The demand for longjing has led to many imitation teas, but true longjing is grown from specially cultivated trees in Hangzhou, and has a fuller aroma and lingering aftertaste than teas claimed to be longjing that have different origin. Longjing is one of China’s Famous Teas (中国名茶).
