From Whittard of Chelsea

A perfectly balanced green tea with an exquisite fragrance, from the hills of Lung Jing, China.

Legend tells that this was the tea of emperors, first grown in the lair of a dragon. Its taste is certainly legendary; a perfect balance of delicate and rich, with hints of chestnut. The leaves, delicate with a golden sheen are picked in the mists of early spring. Dragonwell of Lung Jing, China, brews to give a pale green infusion that’s lightly sweet and tremendously fragrant.

Hooray, Whittard has steeping instructions for this on their website now! Unfortunately 2 minutes is too long for the first steep, especially with the amount of dust and broken leaves I pulled up in my spoon. The flavor is pretty good, but I dislike the astringency, which makes the entire inside of my mouth feel like fine sandpaper. Next time I’ll try it at 1 minute and see how that works out.

The aroma of the dry leaf is amazing, though. I could spend all day with my face in the container.
