From Red Blossom Tea Company

From the same family who grew and produced the Panan Supreme, and from the same Pan’an region of central Zhejiang. Our Ming Qian Dragonwell Panan comes from a tea garden located 800 meters above sea level (2600 feet), crafted using the same organic farming methods as our Panan Supreme, but using a cultivar named #43. Those who know their Dragonwells would recognize the cultivar as one that takes well in higher elevation, colder tea gardens.

Hand-picked late March 2011, and pan-fired by hand by a tea craftsman whose family has been crafting Dragonwell of this quality for three generations.

Made in the style of Xihu Dragonwells: clean, crisp light pan-firing that emphasizes the sweetness and floral characteristics of the tea leaf. Sweet, fruity nose, hint of nuttiness, smooth.

Brighter than Red Blossom’s Pre-rain version, but still lacking in depth. I would recommend a higher quality Dragonwell, such as their Ming Qian Shifeng (Shifeng – which means Lion Peak – is the mountain in Hangzhou, China of Dragonwell tea’s origin; the most prized Dragonwells come from this mountain) or their Pan’an Supreme. Dragonwell is a tea you need to spend a bit more on to get the most of its flavor.

It has been exactly six months since this tea was harvested. Amazingly, it still has that sweet syrup milkiness that it had when I had first tasted it in May. This is what dragonwell is supposed to taste like. I cannot wait until next spring’s harvest.
