WHAT IT IS Originating from the Longjing village in China, this tea is known for its distinctive shape. The leaves are hand-flattened by pan-frying – a practice perfected over many centuries by Chinese tea masters. The leaves undergo minimal oxidation – so, when steeped, they produce a lovely yellow-green color liquid and an inviting, toasty aroma. This Dragon Well Green Tea is rich in vitamin C and has a high concentration of healthy catechins.

FLAVOR NOTES Through the process of pan-frying, the leaves acquire a smooth, nutty and buttery flavor reminiscent of freshly roasted white corn. There is no hint of bitterness, just an inviting, aromatic, truly satisfying cup of green tea.

BACKGROUND Dragon Well Green Tea (Longjin) is a variety of pan-roasted green tea that originates from the Longjin village in the Zhejiang Province, China. Because of its high quality, it has earned the coveted title of “China Famous Tea.”

Also bearing the status of “Gong Cha,” or Imperial Tea, Longjin green tea is said to be connected to Emperor Quianlong of the Qing dynasty. The legend goes that the Emperor was presented with a cup of Longjin tea and was so impressed by it that he conferred imperial status on the tea bushes from which it came. Those bushes are still alive today, and the tea they yield is auctioned annually for higher price per gram than gold.
