Dragon Well, also known as Lung Ching is one of the finest Chinese green teas of all.
The name Dragon Well relates to the shape of the tea leaves which are reminiscent of a ‘flying Dragon’.
To produce Lung Ching a large cast iron pan is heated up to 280C before the fresh tea leaves are placed into it to prevent oxidation.
Such fine tea like this can only be achieved by carrying out the entire production by hand with an enormous amount of care during production.
From picking all the way to the final drying of the leaves this care shows in the high quality level of this tea.
The fine infusion develops a delicate and slightly sweet taste with a wonderful bright yellow cup. Even after several brews the character of this tea is still apparent.
