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.

LoL OK 3 new teas (tea bags to be precise) again. This time they came as a gift from a cousin who lives in Germany. There comes something good out of annoying people with tea stories after all ;) For me at least. I’m seriously starting to be overcrowded with tea. Weird feeling.
Ya and i got 3 packages on the post office: one is Adagio teas, one should be an awesome t shirt. No idea what the third one is…

Back to the tea.
Leaves smell like fresh cut grass or something. Very nice real smell.
Color is yellow. Tea itself smells very herbal but different than dry leaves. Cant remember what it reminds me of.
Leaves are even bigger than white one from this morning. Quite bigger:

Hmmm is that weird smell jasmine? Would be easier to tell if i spoke German better :D It’s a very specific herbal taste, quite strong, and really not bad. Weird for me tho.
I Googled an english description:
China Lung Ching – Widely known as “Dragon Well,” Lung Ching is one of China’s “Ten Famous Teas” eagerly awaited each March and April. Meticulously plucked, withered and pan-fired to perfection, this premium grade tea is a masterful achievement of the balance between bitter and sweet. A sunshine yellow infusion presents contrast. Roasted chestnut resounds and bitter green undertones give way to a softer, sweeter hint of vanilla.

I’m getting the softness. Wouldn’t call it vanilla but ya i get what they meant. And it really is sweet. Quite.

So basically i like it but still find it weird. Or my taste buds do. They will get used to it soon. They always do. I can see this becoming one of those teas that give me cravings…

Fishie teacups are there just for Rabs ;)

ROFL! I clicked on the first pic and squeeled “fishie teacups!” The other pic I just smiled, and then I read your little note and laughed :D I came close to purchasing a gaiwan that has fishies on it, but I couldn’t tell if they were in the bottom of the cup so I passed it over (plus the fishies weren’t as cute as yours). Those cups just make me happy :)


love the pictures…vanilla you say? hmm


@amayonv they said it in the dragonwell description. I wouldnt call it vanilla lol
@rabs i’ll gladly include the cups on most of my pics. it just takes them to another place right? if u want the link to my fishie cups i’ll post it later. i’m in the bus now lol


I’d love the link :D

malomorgen there you go. it’s an ebay store and everything for me went smooth. they packed it well and it arrived like 3-4 weeks after ordering. b4 ordering i asked them what if they break in transport and they said they send new ones. so well good feedback from me. and you know how much i love them. they cost but i don’t regret at all ;) (i was trying to resist not buying them but didn’t manage lol, i took the first occasion to gift myself – that was my name-day)


That’s awesome! I need to wait for my mid-month paycheck, but they’re sooo gonna be mine mwhahahahaaaa! But I will still love seeing them in your photos. :) I’m also really glad to know that you had a good experience with that store. They have a few gaiwans I was eyeballing but hadn’t heard anything about them as a company on Steepster or the like. Thank you so very much! :D


hehe, after you get them, i think our fishies should hang out ;)


Squeee! :D

The smell of these tea leaves remind me of some of my walks into work while I lived in northern Michigan. A subtle sweet smell in the air as maple syrup season was in full swing. These leaves send off an equally pleasant smell when you open the container they are in. Fantastic start! The tea upon steeping adds a very faint coloration to the water. The taste is a wonderfully cared for green tea. A soft calm drink with a very light touch of sweetness at the end of each sip. This is one beautiful green tea all around!

[AKA Dragon Well] ~ Very difficult to prepare (@ 158) so I can’t be sure it came out right, light and fluffy but very little to distinguish it, but what do you want for seaweed?

Smooth and buttery, water chestnuts and mild squash. This is a lovely dragonwell for the price.
