NO. 40 DRAGON WELL (LONGJING)

One of China’s most revered green teas, Longjing is grown only in the hills around Hangzhou. At the Yunding Dragon Well Estates, seasoned tea-crafters hand-press tea leaves against hot woks into their signature spear-like form - a tradition that has been handed down from generations. This produces a deliciously fragrant tea that is fresh with the aroma of chestnuts, green leaves and honey.

Enjoy:  Midday to after dinner. Delicious with Asian cuisine.

Brewing:  Pour water at 70-80 degrees (1/4 cold to ¾ boiling) into a pot and add one heaped teaspoon of leaf per cup.  Infuse 1-2 mins.  Able to withstand two infusions.  Serve as is.

Ingredients:  Green tea.
