It is said that the origin of Longjing tea is due to the peach event held by the Queen Mother. At the Pantao meeting, a god who accidentally overturned the tea tray and dropped the tea cup into the world. Later, when the fairy went to the world to search for a teacup, he found that it had already turned into a well, nourishing more than a dozen tea trees, and these numbers were of outstanding quality under the irrigation of this well. This is today's Longjing tea tree. There is also a historical story about the origin of Longjing tea. According to legend, when the Emperor Qianlong visited Jiangnan Weifu, he saw a tea girl picking tea, so he participated. After returning to her residence, the Queen Mother always smelled a delicate fragrance, and asked about the fragrance of dried tea leaves. After drinking the brewed tea, the queen mother was refreshed, so Qianlong was overjoyed and sealed Longjing tea as imperial tea.

After the founding of the PRC, Long Jing was divided into three categories: “Lion Peak”, “Mei Jia Wu”, and the premium “Xihu” Long Jing that we sell.
