Long Jing (Dragonwell)

GREEN TEA

25 reviews

Pan-fired in a hot wok and flattened by hand, Dragonwell (also known 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.

Tasting Notes:

Chestnut, butter, sweetgrass

My favorite hot, tepid or iced

I have been experimenting with green and oolong teas using Gaiwan and western brew methods. This is perhaps my favorite tea. It is excellent hot, iced or room temperature as an alcohol free wine substitute with food. At 5g tea/10oz water, 185 degrees, I can steep 8-10 times during the day starting at 30 sec- 45- 60- 90 - 2 min- +30 sec up to 4 minutes. The first couple steepings I drink hot. Note that tea is rich and full even at 45 sec. Later steepings are left at room temp or refrigerated for iced tea. I particularly enjoy having my room temp in a wine glass with dinner. Pairs as a Chardonnay would but with no alcohol side effects. 5g seems like a lot of tea but considering this provides multiple beverages for the day it is affordable even at the higher price.

Love Long Jing

I'd had Dragonwell tea previously from a different tea supplier and was interested to try yours. I was not disappointed. It surpassed my flavor expectations and I will be ordering again.

Can taste the higher quality!

I was gifted some dragonwell from a local tea and coffee shop, and it was okay, but I wanted to try something higher quality to compare before I bought more. WOW! What a difference. This tea is excellent and can be brewed multiple times before losing its flavor. Really pleased with this purchase.

Long Jing (Dragonwell)

Chinese Green Tea

Traditionally pan-fired in a hot wok and flattened by hand, Dragonwell, also known 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.

Hangzhou

Hangzhou is the capital city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. Long since seen in China as a center for culture, food and art, Hangzhou is also famous for Xi Hu, or its West Lake. True to its name, this westernly situated lake is a pure joy to jog around in the morning, where one can take in the scenery and watch the locals gather in groups to practice taijiquan, line dance, jazzercise and so much more. Long Jing is harvested from late March to May.
