Story & Lore Dragonwell | Green Tea
Available online only in 2oz quantities. Limited quantities available.
Though we’ll do our best to obtain this tea in the future, there is no guarantee it will be available until harvest and production are complete in the spring of 2024 and we’ve had a chance to assess the finished product. We’ll keep you updated.
The heat at Dragonwell's core is the tale that never ends. The roast quality is finely sculpted, not charred. Light in body, but the spectrum of green tea characters – grassy, nutty, floral – are all competing for your attention. Vary the steeping and you’ll get different stories.
Produced April 9, 2023 by Mr. Qian Taifeng in Qiandao Lake, Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. It’s a one bud and one leaf pick from a local cultivar growing at 1,000 meters. The iron wok is the tool that produces the flat leaves of Dragonwell (Chinese: Long Jing). The practitioners of this tool go through years of training where they learn the ten hand techniques and develop the iron palm that becomes conditioned to the heat.
