My every day drinking tea. The owner of the Ten Ren shop on Eccles Ave. in San Francisco promised me that I would enjoy this tea and he was right. I find it has a cleaner taste than other types of Dragon Well tea that I have tried. Plus, the affordable price of this tea allows it to be a tea that you can enjoy throughout the day.
Special Lung Ching (Dragon Well)
Ten Ren’s Special Dragon Well is a very good quality Dragon Well Green tea. This grade uses very tender tea leaves picked during early spring. There are a very few broken leaves among the dried tea leaves.
A steeping time of 1 to 2 minutes with about 70°C/160°F water is recommended, with an additional 15 seconds for each successive infusion. Use about 1 tablespoon (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 ml) of water. This tea may be infused 3 or more times. The use of a covered glass or ceramic cup is recommended for steeping in order to fully appreciate the tea leaves.
