West Lake Dragon Well Tea Harvest Expect To Drop 10% Next Year

It’s the most popular tea in China and perhaps also abroad: the longjing tea (dragon well). It’s a green tea from the south of Hangzhou. Xinhua, China’s state news site reports today that severe drought this summer will result in a lower harvest next Spring, as expected by the city’s tea management office.

Less output means higher prices. If you’re a longjing fan, we recommend to stock up and refrigerate a part of your stock for long-term use! China has lots of other tea regions that produce excellent green tea though. So perhaps next year is the time to start experimenting with new teas!
