Xinchang is located in the mountainous area of eastern Zhejiang. The terrain drops in a ladder shape from southeast to northwest, forming three geomorphic areas: Tiantai Mountain in the southeast, Kuaiji mountain in the southwest and Siming Mountain in the northeast. Most of the peaks are more than 700 meters above sea level. There are many foggy days in tea gardens on the mountains, and there are often clouds at the top of the mountain, which is very beneficial to tea trees.

The name of the Grand Buddha Dragon Well (Da Fo Long Jing) is related to the Grand Buddha Temple. The temple was built in the Eastern Jin Dynasty and has a stone Buddha statue with a history of more than 1600 years. It is said that long ago, a woman lived in the village next to the Grand Buddha Temple in Xinchang. One night, she dreamt that she went to the Grand Buddha Temple to worship. Suddenly, she saw the Grand Buddha got up and went outside the hall, and picked some tree buds to drink. It was fragrant. When the woman woke up, she found these tea trees and made them for drinking. As expected, they were fragrant and mellow, so they were called “Grand Buddha tea”.

  1. March

    Good choice
    Well, I couldn’t tell the difference between the grand buddha long jing and west lake long jing which I bought before. But this one is definitely a good choice because it’s much cheaper than the west lake.

  2. Peter

    I recommend this tea. This is cheaper than the West lake Longjing, but tasted very good.

  3. Ho

    I brewed it with Glass. It was very refreshing. Leaves were beautiful.
