Origin

Dragon Well tea has always been associated with the rulers and governments of China, and is said to have been brewed by Emperor Qianlong for his Empress Dowager during the very early 1900s.

This superior green tea has all the health benefits of green tea but dragon well tea is fondly known as China’s national drink, and has been served by Chinese government leaders to visiting heads of state for years.

Even today, a large portion of the production of dragon well tea is reserved back for orders to the government in China.

Production

Grown in Zhejiang Province on the eastern coast of China, a region esteemed for its superior Lung Ching tea. After wilting, dragon well tea leaves are carefully hand dried in pans to protect their characteristic colour and taste.

Taste

Lightly sweet and buttery with a sweet and long-lasting ‘hui gan’ (aftertaste), this exceptional quality dragon well tea has a hint of freshly cut grass.

To serve one

Heat 250mls of water to 80°C. Add 1 heaped teaspoon of Dragon Well tea, infuse for 2 minutes and enjoy.
