Dragonwell | Green Tea
A mellow, light, clean cup. Lightly nutty and herbaceous. An inexpensive introduction to China's most popular green tea.
Longjing (“Dragonwell”) originates from the West Lake area of Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province, China. Its signature flat leaves are pan-fired by hand in a wok to arrest oxidation and keep the leaf green. Though wide-ranging in outcomes, this technique tends to produce green tea that is strong with a bold, fire-like taste many find appealing.
