Other Notes Long Jing is the most famous Chinese tea and usually ranks #1 on the 10 Famous Chinese tea lists . It originates in the Xihu lakeside. The processing of Long Jing tea is almost all done in a thick iron pan and fried by hand. The seemingly simple processing is a very intricate and difficult work of art. The result is an excellent world famous tea. It has lingering orchid bean-like flavor with brisk mellow taste.
