|In your Chinese lesson, you may have heard of Longjing tea of China, which is also known as Dragon Well tea -- a variety of roasted green tea from Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. As it is produced mostly by hand and has been renowned for its high quality, it has earned the "China Famous Tea" title. |
While learning Chinese tea culture, it is necessary to know how teas are served and drunk. As well as with dim sum, many Chinese drink their tea with snacks such as nuts, plums, dried fruit (in particular jujube), small sweets, melon seeds, and waxberry. China was the earliest country to cultivate and drink tea which is enjoyed by people from all social classes. Tea processing began after the Qin and Han Dynasties. Chinese tea is often classified into several different categories according to the species of plant from which it is sourced, the region in which it is grown, and the method of production used. To learn Chinese tea culture, you'd better know several teas' categories: green tea, oolong tea, black tea, scented tea, white tea, and compressed tea. There are four major tea plantation regions in China. They are Jiangbei, Jiangnan, Huanan and the southwestern region. Well known types of green tea include Longjing, Huangshan, Mao Feng, Bilochun, Putuofeng Cha, and Liu'an Guapian. China is the world’s largest exporter of green tea.
