How to tell the year of your Imperial Green Long Jing tea?

We apologise if your packet of 'Imperial Green – Pre Qing Ming' says '2019' on it when you've been expecting a 2020 picking.


Due to a printing error, your packet of 2020 'Imperial Green – Pre Qing Ming' may say '2019' season on it.

To check if you have received a 2020 picking, simply look at the 'BATCH' on the back of the packet. If you see 'BATCH: 0520' then it means you have a 2020 picking of Long Jing.

Again, apologies for the error and please check the BATCH number to confirm the picking date of your Long Jing tea.
