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.
