Dragon Well Green Tea Reserve Grade

2 oz.
4 oz.
8 oz.

Dragon Well (Long Jing) green tea is considered one of China's 10 famous teas. Our 2024 spring harvest Dragon Well Reserve Grade is a top-grade, pre-Qing Ming Dragon Well tea from the Xihu area (West Lake), the traditional terroir for Dragon Well. It is handcrafted by the Yan family, who has been crafting Dragon Well for at least 3 generations. 

Harvested in mid-March before Qing Ming, only a single bud and one leaf are picked, a style that is known as Qi Chiang (Flagged Spear). A meticulous pan-firing and rolling results in uniformly shaped flat, jade-green leaves with a soft floral aroma. The taste is clean, crisp and mellow with hints of roasted soybean and chestnut. The finish is lightly sweet and long lasting.

Origin: China, Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou, Xihu District, Hu Pao Village
Harvest Season: March 14, 2024 (pre-Qing Ming)

Brewing Guide
Use 3 g (1 heaping tbsp.) per 6 oz (175ml) of water. Heat water to 175º F. Let steep 2-3 minutes. Green teas can usually yield 3-4 infusions. Adjust amount of leaf, brewing time and water temperature according to your personal preference.
