    2       ts           Salt
    1       tb           Long Jing (Dragon Well) tea

   IF THE SHRIMP ARE UNPEELED, peel them by removing
   their shell, legs and tail. Devein them by making a
   surface cut down the back of the shrimp and removing
   the black, green or yellow matter. Rinse them well
   under cold running water and pat them thoroughly dry
   with paper towels. Rub the shrimp evenly with salt and
   set aside. Put the tea leaves in a heat-proof
   measuring cup and pour in the hot water. Let the tea
   steep for 15 minutes. Heat a wok or large saute pan
   until it is hot and add the oil. Then add the shrimp
   and rice wine and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in the
   tea and half of the leaves and cook for another
   minute. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon to a
   serving platter and reduce any liquid in the wok by
   half. Pour this over the shrimp and serve at once.
