Dragon Well (Long Jing)
Dragon Well (literal translation of the Chinese “Long Jing”) is regarded as China’s “national tea”, high on the list of “Top 10” teas. Dragon Well comes from the town of Hangzhou in China’s Zhejiang Province. The tea trees grow on the many hills surrounding the famous West Lake (Xi Hu). This region is considered to have the most ideal natural conditions for growing tea plants, including warm temperature, humidity, adequate rainfall, and rich and slightly acidic soil.
The flat and smooth pale green tea leaves produce a clear green liquor with a subtle fragrance. This tea provides a truly memorable taste, both nutty and sweet, with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste.
