From California Tea House

Lung Ching, or Dragon Well, is the national drink of China and customarily is given to visiting heads of state. Like most other Chinese green tea, Dragon Well leaves are heated in a pan over open flame to end the fermentation process. This fermentation occurs during the very tedious drying process.

As with all California Tea House’s teas, Dragon Well is best brewed in mineral water. Chinese folklore tells a story of rain water staying at the surface of well water due to its ability to fly. This ‘floating water’ sometimes creates a twisting serpentine form in the well that resembles a dragon. Brew your tea in this perfect water for the perfect cup, hence the name ‘Dragon Well’. Good luck catching ‘dragon water’, but some of our customers do eat the leaves of Dragon Well after steeping. They can’t get enough!

The dry leaves smell different to me than other dragon wells. I usually notice a papery smell but this particular blend smells vegital. I didn’t think that was possible because I didn’t think dried veggies could possibly retain the green smell and I still don’t think actual food can but these dry tea leaves do.
The vegital smell in the dry leaves disappears with steeping leaving toasty and sweet broth with no detectable spinach type flavors which I had been expecting because of the smell. This is an extremely light tea and I will experiment with longer steep times to see where the over steeping point is and how robust the flavor can become.
Mouth feel is more on the dry and airy side. This does not feel like a robust tea on this steep but again I will experiment with long steep times to try to pull the robustness out.

This doesn’t look like DragonWell to me either!
