Dragon Well Pyramids

Authentic, high-grade example of this famous and popular green tea.
This best loved Chinese green tea is grown in the hills of Zhejiang Province near Long Jing, the village where this famous tea originated. The green tea leaves are picked young and taken back to the village where the skilled tea masters use their bare hands to press them flat in a hot, dry wok in the traditional way. This arrests the oxidation process and ensures the clear, bright green liquor carries the aroma of fresh cut grass, rounded off by soft, notes of chestnut and hazelnut. We've put it in a pyramid bag so that you can enjoy authentic green tea on the go.

This tea is also available in loose leaf.

When the overwhelming desire for a really decent green tea strikes, you can satisfy it by taking these pyramid teabags with you wherever you go.

I have been drinking Dragon Well for years and when I discovered these I was delighted. I keep a packet with me in my bag and I can take it to friend's houses so I don't have to drink the usual milk and two sugars. Perfect.

Dragon Well is very significant to Chinese culture, and trying it is essential to gaining a true experience of Chinese tea. A real Long Jing can only come from Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. The intricate processing requires tea masters, generally over the age of 50, who press the leaves into the hot woks by hand.

Dragon Well is renowned for distinctive flattened leaves, a strong aroma and a deep, long-lasting flavour. The yellower the leaves the better, indicating less chlorophyll and younger buds. Something about the wok-pressing process that seems to develop Dragon Well into an extremely rewarding green tea, with a richness of flavour that retains its intensity for a long time.

Our Long Jing is grown on a small tea garden on an Island of Qiandao Lake, aka ‘Thousand Island Lake’ in Zheijiang province. This lake is manmade, created in the Maoist era (1950s) when a hydroelectric station was built nearby, flooding an area of 573km² containing two ancient cities and three other ancient townships, which now lie submerged beneath. The lake is dotted with over 1000 islands covered in lush forests and full of wildlife.
