Quick description: Flat green tea, similar to Longjing with a nutty aroma.

Da Fang Tea (Chinese: 顶谷大方; pinyin: dǐng gǔ dà fāng), also named Zhupu Da Fang or Zhuye Da Fang, is a Chinese green tea. It is considered one of China's top ten teas by some Chinese tea experts. Like Longjing tea, it has sharp flat shapes and a similar production process. Some Chinese tea experts believe Da Fang Tea is an ancestor of Longjing tea. It is more accepted that Da Fang tea is the earliest tea with flat leaves.

Da Fang tea is produced near Lao Zhuling (老竹岭) mountain and Fu Guanshan (福全山) mountain of She County (歙县), Anhui Province. Its dried leaves take on a yellowish green colour with sleek and flat shapes. Its buds are usually hidden and covered with golden down. When brewed, the liquor gives a durable fragrance with a sweet aftertaste. Different drying processes separate Da Fang tea into two types. Zhong Huo (重火) features a chestnut-like aroma, while Qing Huo (轻火) features a brisk and delicate taste.
