It is grown in the province of Chekiang, on the beautiful Hangchow Lake near Shanghai. Harvesting is done before the rainy season, in April, when the tender shoots are only small leaves. These tender leaves are then subjected, for a short time, to a high temperature in cooking pots similar to woks. This process is used to break down the enzymes that cause oxidation that blocks fermentation. The leaves are then hot-pressed giving it the classic form of flattened Lung Chin.
