Included in this luxury gift box is one of the most popular teas in China; Long Jing (Dragon Well) tea from the lion hill in Hangzhou. Taking you to the mountains of the Anhui province, our organic Huangshan Maofeng (Yellow Mountain) has a lovely clean spring taste.

For green teas, we recommend drinking from glassware to observe the beautiful leaves unfurling. Either keep the leaves in your glass and continually top up with hot water, or infuse the leaves for around 2 minutes according to taste. For further infusions, add a few seconds on.
This tea is best enjoyed without milk.
