From SpecialTeas

The Lung Ching or “Dragons Well” with its subtle, chestnut flavor is probably the most renowned green tea in the world. Its mellow, slightly sweet taste makes it very enjoyable, even for the green tea novice. The leaves are dried in a hot wok. Skillful hands press the leaves against the sides of the wok and turn them repeatedly until they obtain their characteristically flat shape. This basic Lung Ching from the Chinese Zehjiang Province is an excellent value.

Entirely handmade, the fresh aroma and beautiful jade-green color of this tea are usually found only in significantly more expensive grades. Enjoy this vitamin C-rich tea throughout the day or as an evening revitalizer.

Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh, cold water until slow steam rises (160° F); let steep for 2 min.

This tea is also available in a convenient tea pyramid.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Green tea

Had this again this morning. Wasn’t as good as I remember, although I think I got the water a little too hot. I didn’t get any hints of anything, just a mouth full of grass. Boo.

But I’m not going to drop the rating because I think it’s my own fault with the temperature.

But this may have been influenced by the dream I had right before waking in which I found out Klingons make tea out of different varieties of metal filings, and that the flavor of this tea is really influenced by the type of tea pot used. (My brain is a scary, scary place sometimes….)

Bwhahaha! That’s an awesome dream. XD

The taste begins with the pleasant brown nut-like flavor characteristic of a Lung Ching, then moves to a seaweed green vegetal flavor and finishes with the classic bright astringency. A contemplative, physical green tea without a lot of subtlety, like hiking the Smokey Mountains with just the bare necessities.

My first log entry. 10am. I have been drinking this tea from specialteas.com for some time. It is my favorite green so far. Course I am just learning the ways of tea. I love the flavor of it. The last order though wasn’t as good. Maybe it was older than the rest. I just got a new thermometer maybe it is reading a little low. Seemed a little bitter.

I think they just got a new shipment in. I think I will purchase from somewhere else for the next dragon well tea. Time to broaden my shopping of vendors.
