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.
