Finer and safer quality Longjing from the genuine origin has become so high price that there is a great demand for alternatives. Tea Hong’s Longjing Pure is produced deep in the high mountains in a national conservation area away from pollution. Same latitude as Hangzhou, but higher up in altitude. Even more ideal for green tea. Not only does it answer the market need but can also satisfy the connoisseur’s high requirement for taste authenticity. Tea Hong’s Longjing Pure. Purely Longjing.
Warm, nutty aroma with a definitive steamed mung bean undertone and hints of sweet floral fragrance. Tasty (umami) and yet clean infusion with a sharp pitch of raw ginseng bitterness with tints of salt. Long umami aftertaste and sweetness at the throat.
The taste character is quite different, albeit pleasant, when this tea is infused lightly. To experience its full spectrum, steep the leaves in a well pre-heated high density Yixing pot between at 75~80°C and infuse with a minimum of 2 g of leaves to each 100 ml of water for 4 to 6 minutes.
No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do.
Produced using a Phoenix native cultivar Da Baiye ( i.e. Big White Leaf ), and has certain taste similarity as the rarer Song Cultivar Huangzhi Xiang, this tea is popular amongst traders for use as a substitute for the pricier label. Tea Hong’s top quality selection, Big White is certainly a good demonstration of how this tea can fool the lesser experienced connoisseurs. That said, however, the trained tongue can certainly tell it is a fine tea on its own for the uniqueness in its floral aroma, silky texture and soft, smooth body.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

Unlike other green teas that are prized for plucking early in Spring, leaves of Da Guazi need to be quite open in order to make a fine Luan Guapian. This gives the proper biochemistry that yields enough pectin for the tea's signature velvety texture and slightly sweet character. This unique nature is possible only with a special local cultivar — Da Guazi — Big Melon Seed, hence the funny name. If Longjing is too savoury and Taiping Houkui is too "green" for you, Lu'an Guapian is a great alternative of high quality with a different, yet pleasant and lively character.Net weight: 50 g (1.8 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
