This loose leaf tea is distinguished by its exquisite flavour, which is mellow and delicate with a sweet aftertaste. Dragon Well liquor has a beautiful yellowy-green colour that gives it an alluring quality.

Ingredients - Pure Chinese green tea

Health benefits - This tea contains Vitamin C, amino acids, and - like most fine Chinese green teas - has a high concentration of catechin.

Information for tea connoisseurs

King of Chinese green tea Dragon Well tea - also referred to as Long Jing or Lung Ching - is the national drink of China. It is frequently presented as a greeting gift to visiting heads of state. Dragon Well is well regarded amongst the green tea lovers and ranks as the finest amongst the ten famous Chinese teas.

Our supreme version of Dragon Well tea is derived from Xifeng Village, West Lake Region, Zhejiang Province, China. Here, it is meticulously dried by hand using a traditional pan-firing method. Fêted as the ‘Tea of the Emperor’, this stunning blend affords a pale and illuminating yellow liquor with the most gentle and pure aroma.

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.

Supreme Dragon Well No.56
Wednesday, 28 April 2021  |  Graham

Zhejiang Supreme Dragon Well No.56, to give its full name, is a high-quality Long Jing Chinese green tea that stands out above lesser green teas. I would recommend this tea to all serious green tea drinkers who are looking for a drinkable green tea with an excellent flavour that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. Buy it and try it!
