Pan-fired in a hot wok and flattened by hand, Dragonwell, also know as "Long Jing" is for many the most famous green tea. The best comes from Hangzhou, near the spring where a dragon was said to dwell. We prize its pale emerald color and slightly sweet, chestnut-like taste. Also offered as sachets in a pyramid tin.
Full leaf China green tea from Zhejiang Province.
For best flavor, bring freshly drawn filtered water to 190 degrees. Steep three minutes. Imagine your cup is a dragon well.
