Dragonwell

$7.80Price

One of China's most famous green teas, Dragonwell (Lung Ching or Longjing in local parlance) comes from Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. This tea has a very distinctive shape: smooth and perfectly flattened along the inside vein of the leaf, the result of highly skilled shaping in a hot wok. This process, known as pan-firing or pan-frying, was perfected in China by tea masters over many centuries. It gives the tea an inviting, toasty aroma.

  • Product Info

    It surprises many people new to tea to learn that green tea and black tea originate from the same exact plant species—Camellia sinensis. It’s ultimately the variety of tea plant and how the tea leaves are processed that defines how green tea becomes “green” and black tea becomes “black”.

     

    Typically, green teas are brewed in short infusions at around 160 to 180 degrees. Don’t scorch your tea! If the water is too hot, especially for green tea, your tea will release more bitterness and astringency more quickly.

     

    Using about 2 grams (1 teaspoon) of loose leaf tea per 8 oz. cup of water is a safe bet. 

     

    Always start with fresh, pure, cold filtered water when you brewing tea. Spring water is the best. 

     

    Cover your tea while it steeps to keep all the heat in the steeping vessel.

     

    Most high-quality loose leaf white teas can be steeped multiple times.

Up to 12 oz only.
