Dragonwell Long Jing Tea is a perfectly balanced green tea with an exquisite fragrance that has delighted tea connoisseurs for thousands of years.

Like many Chinese teas, Dragonwell is steeped in legend. It is named after a local village called Dragonwell, where it is believed villagers ended a severe drought by praying for rain from a dragon that lived in a nearby spring. Growing in the hills surrounding Hangzhou in China the tea is produced with extreme skill by carefully picking only two leaves and a bud in the mists of early spring. The tea is then hand-pressed against a hot wok to give it its unique shape and flavour. The result is a perfectly-balanced delicate and rich tea with hints of chestnut.

Dragonwell is an exceptional-tasting green tea to be enjoyed brewed lightly and drunk at any time of the day.

Perfect for use in our Cold Brew T Bottle

 

Ingredients

100% Green Tea.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.

Tried a few other green teas and have not enjoyed them at all. This is delicious and very refreshing, a very clean taste. I can feel my body thanking me for drinking it :) really great tea and it goes a long way!

A fragrant tea with great green leafy notes, quite fragrant too and it has several very good steeps. It has a slight fragrant sweetness that sits very well. All in all a great fresh tasting tea.

Full of so many flavours, lightly sweet and beautifully fragrant! It's one of those teas that you can fully immerse yourself in, take in the scent, sipping slowly to appreciate the subtle accents of the leaf. That old saying 'Stop to smell the roses', well this is that phrase manifested as a tea!
