Organic Dragon Well 50g Tin

Famous green tea with notes of green beans and sweet chestnut.
This delicious organic 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 shows wonderful a depth and smoothness, unusual in a green tea. Just ensure you brew it cool (around 75°C) to bring out the soft, sweet notes.
