Welcome to the enchanting world of Dragonwell green tea—a renowned gem from the lush, mist-covered slopes of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. Known locally as Lung Ching or Longjing, this exquisite tea is as famed for its heritage as it is for its uniquely alluring shape, each leaf a testament to the artisan's touch. Smooth and impeccably flattened along the inner vein, shaped lovingly in a hot wok, this tea embodies the culmination of centuries-old pan-firing techniques perfected by Chinese tea masters.
Dragonwell, or Longjing, tea is known for its long flat shape. This is caused by the wok-frying process used to stop oxidization; however, there are rumors as to other ways the tea could have gotten its shape. One legend states that while visiting the Longjing tea gardens, the Qianlong Emperor was so impressed that he wanted to try picking the leaves himself. However, he was called away during picking when he found out his mother was ill. Rumor says the leaves have been shaped to look like the ones he stored in his sleeve as he left ever since.

It's not just the shape that captivates; our Dragonwell exudes an inviting, toasty aroma that draws you into its comforting embrace. The flavor is a celebration of sweetness, rounded and reminiscent of the pure delight found in freshly roasted white corn. Every sip unfolds a full spectrum of nutty and buttery nuances, culminating in a pleasantly dry finish that lingers on the tongue, leaving you yearning for the next comforting cup.

With a moderate level of caffeine, our Dragonwell green tea offers a balanced boost to your day, invigorating yet harmonious, best enjoyed when steeped at 180° for 2-3 minutes to allow the full flourish of its flavor to come forth.

Presented in a resealable zip bag containing 15 pyramid teabags, our Dragonwell is not only a beverage but an experience—a celebration of tradition and taste that's ready to grace your cup with its legendary character. Embrace this truly satisfying tea and let it take you on a serene journey with every steep.
