Dragon Well

Famous green tea with notes of green beans and sweet chestnut.
This delicious Dragon Well 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 liquor carries the notes of freshly cut grass, rounded off by a soft, nutty flavour.

This tea is also available in a Canton Pyramid teabag.

A fabulous introduction to what a green tea can be. Refreshing, moreish, satisfying, tasty, sweet, vegetal and nutty.

Smooth and Tasty

This is a smooth green tea and it really tastes like chestnuts, highly recommend.

Dragon Well

Very refreshing and energising.

Loved this green tea

Dragon Well

Delicious

I reviewed the Jade Tips also as I brought the two together and they are both equally delicious, this is the sharper of the two with a more grassy taste as oppose to the more buttery taste of the Jade Tips. I would strongly recommend both.

Dragon Well

FANTASTIC!

Fantastic!

Dragon Well

grassy and woody and still sweet enough

4

/ 5

I really like this tea and its distinctive woodiness - especially in the aroma - along with the grassy refreshing taste that lingers in the mouth. It isn't quite as wonderful/refined in taste as the superior variety, but the cheaper price makes me feel better about drinking it by the pot instead of keeping refilling and re-infusing, when I don't have a kettle nearby!

Dragon Well

A great Dragon Well at a reasonable price

/ 5

This is a very satisfying tea with a subtle but solid flavour, a very good everyday Dragon Well. Green bean and chestnut flavours develop over several steepings, and lots of sweetness.

Dragon Well

My Favourite So Far

5

/ 5

I really can't describe how this tea tastes. All I know is that that I love the flavour and of all the green teas I've tasted I like this one best so far. It's full of flavour and very refreshing. I first came across Long Jin (Dragon Well) in tea bags at Costa Coffee. It was certainly better tasting than a lot of green teas I have had at these chain coffee shops which are usually tasteless. On my last visit to Spain I bought some loose Long Jin in a specialist tea shop I discovered which was very good so when that ran out I searched for an organic one online and found this one which has proved to be even better. I look forward to my pot every morning.

Dragon Well

All-time favourite

Fresh, vibrant tea with a softness to it. Definitely requires a lower than boiling water temperature to appreciated the best flavour and should not be over-brewed. Good value as you get several brewings from each lot of leaves. I find the best flavour is with the second brewing. This is a tea that I keep returning to... I try others but keep returning to this excellent tea.

Dragon Well

a great green tea

Bought tis a couple off weeks ago its my second Long Jing or Dragon Well pick the name u like most!
Brewed this last night with the recommended 2 teaspoons off leave’s with 80°c water (not recommended) and it was bitter. The brew lasted for 3Min but i had my water a bit to hot and way to many leafs for my liking… only started enjoying the third cup off the series brews i did.
Today tough i’m doing it my way, yes yes screw instructions i’m going with what i used my my Dragon Well form Jing. A 2m30 sec infusion with 65°c water and only one teaspoon full off the beautiful flat leaves! The result it a enormous difference over yesterday. I can taste the citrus note’s but there not overwhelming and i’m tasting nuts in the aftertaste. It gives a nice dry mouthfeel…
This is like i can tell a very good Dragon Well tea that surely can revival that off jing!

Dragon Well

Excellent refreshing tea

/ 5

An excellent tea with a clean refreshing taste. Good value for the quality and because you get several brews from each lot of leaves.

Dragon Well

Very affordable everyday green tea

5

/ 5

Very affordable everyday green tea, but that does not men its ordinary. To be honest in its simplicity its one of the best Dragon Well's I have ever drank. Its fresh and buttery, grassy and nutty, crisp and creamy - just as it should be. Highly recommended for all tea enthusiasts.

Dragon Well

Delightfully refreshing

I just love this delightfully refreshing tea: be careful though, it's decidedly more-ish

Dragon Well

My 'go to' everyday tea - simply stunning

5

/ 5

Creamy and buttery in the mouth with fresh grassy / wheaty notes troughout. This is a wonderfull tea which brews well over several infusions (i find it's better to infuse for 10 - 20 seconds each time as brewing for longer can introduce some bitterness). Certainly needs a lower brewing temperate so as not to break down the delicacy of the flavours. Not a cheap tea but well worth it if you enjoy grassy / wheaty green tea.
























Dragon Well

Great sweet grassy flavour.

4

/ 5

A very nice, rounded organic tea with great sweet grassy flavour. Well worth the price. If you learn how to make this tea properly, one small spoonful will last the whole day. I find it can take four or even five infusions. Excelllent fast delivery to Norway. Recommended.

Nutty, substantial flavour

Yields the nutty flavour I am seeking and carrys it through to at least the 3rd brewing. A very pleasant and substantial drink to start the day with.

Before discovering this tea I made my first brew of the day with your ordinary tea bag and milk. This tea is so beautiful to drink that I've stopped having milk ... which is having a beneficial affect on my sinuses!

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 by Kong Ming on the tea plantation that has been in his family for over 80 years.
