Known locally as Long Jing, this brightly delicate green tea originates from the verdant hills around the ancient imperial city of Hangzhou, in Zhejiang Province. Dragon Well is one of the Great Teas of China, and is renowned for its yellow and jade folded leaves and highly skilled preparation. Traditionally, the young buds are picked in spring and then expertly shaped by hand and heated using a wok. It takes great skill to judge how long and how many times to pan-fry the leaves. The result is a freshly fragrant and smooth tea with subtle honeyed chestnut notes that linger on the palate.
For a perfect cup: Allow freshly boiled water to cool for 4 minutes (75C). Preheat teapot and measure 2-3g (roughly a pinch) of tea per person. Infuse for 2–4 minutes. To enjoy added nuances, reinfuse the leaves up to 3 times.
