1. Premium Grade Dragon Well Tea, 25g
2. Imperial Dragon Well Tea, 25g
First Flush of Spring (March) Harvest Grown on Da Fo Mountain in Zhejiang at an altitude of 400 Meters. Picked in the early Spring before the Qing Ming holiday. The leaves and buds are extremely small and uniform and are light green in color.
The temperate, overcast, and rainy winter climate of Hangzhou contributes to the tenderness and sweetness of the buds and leaves which are expertly pan-fried in a wok which further brings out the tea's unique characteristics, with slightly sweet and bitter subtleties and the distinguished 'roasted chestnut' aroma.
The tea soup is soft and fragrant, and a very pleasant 'hui gan' lingers in the back of the mouth and throat well after drinking. The taste and aroma last through many infusions, and the brewed leaves give a particularly good mouth-feel when chewed on! Taste this side by side with Premium and you will taste the difference.
During the Qing Dynasty, the imperial Qing court considered Dragon Well to be the tea of summer while they favored Pu-erh tea during the winter. This is likely due to the soft, refreshing, and cooling taste that the tea provides.
How to brew Dragon Well tea?
4 - 5 g for 250ml of water, in a glass cup or glass cha hai pitcher.
The most common way is to NOT rinse the leaves.
Use water that is about 80~90 degrees and infuse for 1 to 2 minutes before drinking.
Once the water in the glass/pitcher reaches halfway, pour more hot water and fill to the top. This can be repeated several times, mostly retaining the original flavor of the tea. No filter is needed and many enjoy chewing on or eating the tender leaves. Adjust the amount of leaves, amount of water, and infusion times to reach your preferred strength of the tea.
LewisI brewed this tea at 180°. The scent is very umami and it’s delightfully savory and full in body. Almost broth like. Very much like a sencha in my opinion, but I enjoy it more than the sencha I’ve tried so far. Sweet in a roasted veggie way.Classic Laoshan Green Tea
BenThe Imperial Dragon Well Tea has the classic Longjing aroma - plenty of nuttiness and a slight vegetal aroma that gives it a nice balance. When brewed it comes out quite smooth with no major bitterness and a generally comfortable quality. Makes a nice daily drinker for those who are inclined towards green teas!Longjing Imperial Dragon Well Tea

B. CThe Classic Laoshan Green Tea is a very delicate, small leaf tea with a surprising amount of flavor. Brewed with lower temperature water this tea gives out a nutty flavor with a nice grounding umami note. A very nice Chinese alternative to a Japanese Sencha, and at a good price as well!Classic Laoshan Green Tea
