Zhejiang

This province has the privilege of producing the legendary, cult tea: Long Jing. The famous Pei Hou and Shi Feng are amoungst the most sought after and prestigious and are therefore unavailable and expensive. These prestigeous teas are harvested and transformed just before the « pure light » festival (the 5th of April), the day consecrated to the dead. The following harvests, in the beginning of May are nevertheless of a very high quality and more accessible.
