Production and health benefits: Like most other Chinese green tea, Longjing tea leaves are roasted early in processing (after picking) to stop the natural oxidation process. The actions of these enzymes are stopped by "firing" or by steaming the leaves before they completely dry out. The tea contains vitamin C , amino acids, and like most finer Chinese green teas, has one of the highest concentrations of catechins among teas.
