History

Xihu Long Jing - West Lake Dragon Well green tea - has a long, distinguished history of over 1200 years. During the Ming Dynasty, it became very popular and was listed as one of the top grade teas in China. During the reign of Emperor Shunzhi in the Qing Dynasty, the Emperor’s love for this tea meant that it was frequently presented by petitioners as a royal tribute.

After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Long Jing tea was divided into three categories - Lion Peak Long Jing, Mei Jia Wu Long Jing, and the premium Xihu Long Jing selected by TeaVivre. In 1996, the West Lake village of Hangzhou city was recognized by the government as the home of Long Jing tea. In recognition of the value and quality of this tea, and the importance of the local environment and culture in its production, the government introduced special protection for this area to preserve its natural state and unique tea culture.
