We're all sold out!

Longan, also known as dragon's eye in Chinese, is a tropical fruit in the soapberry family alongside rambutan and lychee. They have an astringent bark-like skin with a creamy white flesh that is sweet, succulent, and savory with a pleasant melon-like aroma. Longan is exceedingly popular in Asian countries as a food, aromatic, and flavoring for a variety of desserts. It is even dried and used in traditional medicine as a supplement in tea and soup.


Longan is mild and subtle in flavor much like a high end tea. The soft flavor and pleasant aftertaste are unique and highly prized.
