Dragon Well, Pre-rain Sanxia Long Jing, Competition Grade
Mantra Tea’s Pre-rain Supreme Long Jing – The Dragon Well – Loose Leaf Green Tea. Vacuum Sealed. Ships directly from Taiwan.
Many tea experts feel that Dragon Well is the finest and truest of the Green teas. It has been described as the ideal beverage for quiet, contemplative times. Mantra Tea’s selection of Dragon Well is sourced from a unique tea variety grown only in San Xia, Taiwan. The 4th generation of award-winning tea masters processes hand-plucked leaves before Gu Yu, “The Spring Rains” of the Chinese calendar, when Long Jing tea is of best quality.
The tea leaves are pressed tight and flat, and have an inviting smell reminiscent of Nori and toasted caramel. The tea liquor is a bright glowing yellow with a hue of pine tree, and the aroma has hints of lime. It is smooth and gentle to savor, and a perfect complement to seated meditation.
Harvest: Spring 2013
Please be sure to use a high quality spring water, and not too hot, as treated water can spoil the experience.
