This Pre Qing Ming Dragon Well harvest is an extremely rare harvest.

Very hard to find outside of China, this delicious brew is sweet yet nutty with an amazingly smooth finish.

Easily recognized by the hand-flattened, yellow-green leaves and distinct fragrance this spectacular tea is mellow yet flavorful with an almost sweet finish.

One of China’s most well-known, celebrated teas, Dragon Well is grown in the mountains of Zhejiang Province in the village of Long Jing. When in Long Jing you can see this tea being pan fired almost everywhere you go.

This exceptional pre Qing Ming green tea is a real treat for tea drinkers.

~The taste of the lower grade cannot be compared with a special or first grade Dragon Wells’ clean, smooth character and sweet finish

Short steep. Tea still has good body, while very light in color. Very soothing.

Is this the same as a pre-rain Dragon Well? I adore that stuff.


No idea. The name comes from their web site. I’ve not heard of pre-rain.

No problem. I was just wondering. Qing Ming usually refers to a spring festival in China. Picking of tea leaves often takes place after. I had no idea if it correlated with rainfall or not, hence the query. :-)

Lovely, has a great nutty aroma & taste. Slightly sweet, not astringent, Dragonwell may be my favorite green tea. I don’t get a real buttery mouth feel, but maybe I just don’t know what to feel for yet? Second steep introduced a bit of an astringent taste.

I feel I might not be developed enough for this, but I can appreciate some of its tones and subtleties. I’ll keep playing and see how it goes. I want to buy a gong fu set for this one.
