Description Health Benefits Ingredients
Our premium New Dragonwell, harvested in the early spring of 2017, comes directly from tea farms near Hangzhou in the Zhejiang Province - the first and best producers of Long Jing. Known as Ming Qian or pre-Qingming Long Jing, this tea consists only of the most tender spring shoots, hand-picked before the Qingming festival.

The delicate leaves yield a flavorful, full-bodied cup, fresh like a spring breeze and slightly nutty in flavor. It is best taken unsweetened and we recommend you smell the beautiful aroma before enjoying this highly praised national tea of China!

A highly treasured tea in China, Dragonwell was originally thought to be too special for common use and was reserved for the Emperor and other elite government officials. Although now it is widely available outside of China, it is still considered a premium tea.

To this day, Dragonwell is produced in small quantities, picked by hand, and carefully pan-fried in special woks which produces its rich taste.
When the Dragonwell is finished, typically within the same day it is picked, there may only be 30 pounds for the entire harvest. By comparison, most teas are several hundred pounds each season.

Green Tea Slushie: Use 1 tsp of tea / 2 cups of ice / 2 tbsp of honey / 4 oz water / Mix well in a blender and enjoy

trustworthy freshness June 9, 2015
Reviewer: Franquixote from Newfoundland, NJ United States  
Fresh 2015 harvest of dragonwell "lung ching". For those that want to see what all the fuss is about regarding the "best of the best" green tea available in the USA try a little- rest assured that when made correctly you are getting just about the best green tea possible. If you don't see a huge difference between this and what comes from the grocery store then you can buy teabags at 1/100th of the price with confidence : )
The difference to me is worth one cup a month of the "good stuff", but not too much more than that... if you have the cash to drink it daily more power to you.

Dragonwell December 29, 2012
Reviewer: H P from CT United States  
I love this Dragonwell.  Best to get it when it first comes in and is fresh. It goes fast.  It is a high quality green tea with vegetal flavors.
