From Zhi Tea

Our beautiful Organic Long Jing Dragonwell from Zheijiang Province will soothe and refresh.

Broad, flat, bold green leaves create an entrancing golden-green liquor. Rich, nutty, and sweet flavor with a nice rounded finish.

Meticulously plucked in early spring when they are full of aroma and have a silvery shine, careful hands turn and press the leaves in a firing wok until they obtain their characteristically flat shape. The process requires skill to maintain the temperatures needed for superior quality, taste and volume.

Dragonwell (Longjing or Lung Ching) is a delicate green tea known for its gentle, sweet flavor. Dragonwell Green Tea is from eastern China from the providence of Zhejiang. It is famous throughout China for its superior quality and still the most widely known Chinese tea.

The term “Lung Ching” or “Lungching” translates to "Dragon Well.” The tea has taken the name of its village of origin. (See Legends for more detail)

Decent but a little weak, compared to other dragonwells I’ve tasted. I tried increasing the amount, brew time, changing temperature, but nothing got my taste buds excited with this one.
