When thinking about the most famous green tea from China, Dragon Well topped the list. Green tea is largely unoxidized. The oxidation of Chinese green tea is controlled by using the pan-firing method. Perhaps most green tea in the world tries to pan-fire a green tea to copy the style and tradition of Dragon Well.

This pan-firing method keeps the "juice' within the leaf while driving the moisture out of the leaf. Tea master then presses and flattened each leaf by hand. A time-consuming effort that only an experienced tea maker can accomplish. As a result of the pan-firing, Dragon Well is especially nutty, vegetal, and umami. A great tea to drink in the morning. 

This Dragon Well green tea is truly unique. Sourced from the most famous place for a Dragon Well Longjing green tea. This handpicked green tea is very rare and only able to be harvested around 20 kg a year. We are fortunate to be able to carry such a quality green tea.
