"Dragon Well" Premium Grade Dragon Well Tea From Zhejiang Long Jing Tea
Our Dragon Well (Long Jing) Teas are picked in the early Spring before the Qing Ming holiday. They have been selected from growers located on the outskirts of Hangzhou, Zhejiang. The temperate, overcast and rainy winter climate of Hangzhou contributes to the tenderness and sweetness of the buds and leaves which are picked early in the Spring and are then expertly pan-fried in a wok which further brings out the tea's unique characteristics, with slight sweet and bitter subtleties and the distinguished 'roasted chestnut' aroma. The leaves and buds are extremely small, uniform and light green in color. The soup produced is exceptionally soft and fragrant, and a very pleasant nutty flavor that lingers in the back of the mouth and throat well after drinking. The taste and aroma last through many infusions, and the brewed leaves give a particularly good mouthfeel when chewed on!
