Ming Qian Dragonwell Panan 2011
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.
