I like this a lot! It’s got that great floraly-savory Chinese green tea smell and a delicious light taste. I’m not sure Dragonwell’s going to be one of my favorites, but it’s a good standard green tea and I’m glad I have a bag in case I get a hankering for it.
Dragonwell Lung Ching
This famous handcrafted green tea from the city of Hanzhou in Zhejiang province of China derives its “Dragon Well” name from a legend about a dragon who answered a Taoist Monk’s prayers for rain during a drought in 250 AD. The flat leaves are harvested in early spring. The leaves are dried and flattened by repeatedly turning and pressing them against the sides of a hot pan. This tea produces a champagne colored brew with a semi-sweet taste.
