Grown near the famed West Lake in Hangzhou, Dragonwell has been honored since the Tang Dynasty. It is said to be at its best when brewed with water from the nearby Tiger Run Spring which is high in natural minerals and sweet in taste. In making the tea, the leaves are hand roasted in small woks. With precise hand movements of the tea maker, the leaves gain a flat, shiny, and jade appearance.
