Tea Story

Dragon Well Tea (also referred to as Long Jing or Lung Ching) is often called the national drink of China. It is frequently presented as a National Gift to the visiting heads of state, which adds to its high-calibre. Dragon Well tea is highly regarded amongst the green tea lovers, and it ranks as number one of the ten most famous teas of China.

Dragon Well organic green tea is a variety of pan-fried green tea which has an emerald-green, fragrant and distinctive flat shaped leaf.  Once brewed, the tea gives a light, distinctive yellow-green hue, which highlights the top quality of our tea leaves.

The lighter the liquid, the better the quality!

This authentic Chinese tea has been growing for thousands of years in the mountainous terrain of Zhejiang Province, where the youngest buds are hand-picked in the springtime. The mild climate, lack of sunlight and the rainy weather allows the tea leaves to preserve more theanine – which helps give Dragon Well tea its distinct mellow and sweet taste.

 

Health Benefits

It is known that drinking Dragon Well can help aid the body’s digestive system and decrease inflammation. Due to the high concentration of catechins (green tea antioxidants) found in this green tea, fat is burned faster, overall speeding up the body’s metabolic rate. This organic tea also contains Vitamin C and amino acids.

 

 

For a traditional tea experience and a fuller flavour, we recommend drinking Dragon Well tea from a Yixing clay teapot. You can also brew the tea, amongst other of our Chinese teas, with one our luxury Gaiwans.  

This loose-leaf tea works well as an after-dinner drink and pairs nicely with steamed foods, such as steamed vegetables and steamed fish.

 

 

 

Information for tea connoisseurs

West Lake Region: True Long Jing tea comes from the West Lake district on the outskirts of Hangzhou in Zhejiang. The pinyin for West Lake is XiHu so you may see some Long Jing referred to as Xihu Long Jing. This area is a designated protected zone.

Within the West Lake area are the four original Long Jing tea villages of which the best known are Xifeng (aka Shi Feng or Lion Peak) and Mejiawu. The best quality Long Jing is generally accepted as growing in the area of Xifeng.

Amazing!!
Thursday, 3 October 2019  |  V

This is my favourite from this company so far. I thought I'd tried good green tea - little did I know the delightful surprise that awaited me. I cannot praise the aroma and flavour highly enough. One to purchase again and again. I get the slight nutty aroma but also there's something a bit lemony. The flavour stayed with me for quite a while (in a good way!). Fresh taste - LOVE THIS TEA.
