I don't know about the rest. Reply New comment muckefuck June 1 2014, 04:09:18 UTC 2 years ago Collapse Expand New comment #1 and #2 together actually form a single phrase: 龙溪绿茶 "Longxi Green Tea". Longxi ("Dragon Stream") is apparently a village in Qingyuan County (庆元县) in Zhejiang Province.I'll transcribe the rest tomorrow if someone else doesn't get to it first.

I was curious to see if any of these inscriptions actually tell you more about the tea itself (like ingredients, type of tea, etc.). But this is interesting, too. Looks like this province is renowned for its tea, according to Wikipedia. Reply New comment muckefuck June 3 2014, 17:18:39 UTC 2 years ago Collapse Expand New comment Not really. (3) says something about the county where the tea is cultivated being #1 for "ecological environment", whatever that might mean. (4) is a brand name (lit. "Dragon Peak Mist") and (5) is the name of the tea company. (I tried to find an English-language website for them but had no luck.)I've had a least a dozen different varieties of Chinese green tea over the years, but Longxi isn't one of I've heard of before, so I don't have any idea what its characteristics are. The name reminds me of the much better-known Dragon Well (Longjing) tea, also from Zhejiang, but this may be simply a coincidence. (Lots of Chinese place names begin with "dragon".)

The tea tastes great, though. Thanks again for the info! Reply New comment anyolite June 2 2014, 03:46:25 UTC 2 years ago Collapse Expand New comment Thanks!
