Dragon Well Lion's Peak Shi Feng Long Jing (2018)

Our remarkable and premium quality Dragon Well (2018) Long Jing Green Tea produces a clear golden colour infusion that is mellow and nutty with an underlining savoury character of warmed spring greens and toasted pumpkin seeds. It’s aftertaste is mildly salty and vegetal and lingers on the palate long after you have enjoying the cup. The smooth and silky texture and the depth of flavour make this a truly remarkable tea.

Our Dragon Well (Long Jing) Green Tea is made from the finest first flush tea buds from Shi Feng Mountain (Lion’s Peak) near West Lake in Hangzhou – the area where Dragon Well (Long Jing) originated. Hangzhou is famous for producing the most celebrated green tea in China and is also home to the original 18 Dragon Well (Long Jing) bushes that were a tribute to Qing emperor Qianlong.

Dragon Well is easy to recognise by its flat pan roasted leaves of green and yellow shades and its savoury, toasty aroma. The clear golden colour infusion is mellow and nutty with underlining savoury character of warmed spring greens and toasted pumpkin seeds. Aftertaste is mildly salty and vegetal and lingers on the palate long after enjoying the cup. The smooth and silky texture and the depth of flavour make this a truly remarkable Dragon Well.

We source Dragon Well directly from tea master Mr. Wang from Long Jing village. Mr. Wang is highly skilled in hand frying the fresh tea buds and leaves to create Dragon Well's unique flat shape and wonderful nutty flavour. This tea should not be missed.
