We are fortunate to be able to procure a small batch of early spring (pre-Qingming festival) harvested Dragon Well for your enjoyment. Contrary to current trends of using semi-automation to produce Dragon Well teas, this batch of Dragon Well is entirely hand-made and hand sorted, packed immediately at the farm, and airfreighted directly to our warehouse to maintain maximum freshness. Fans of Dragon Well (or Long Ching) will be familiar with the trademark chestnut toastiness, the rich layers of flavors, and its noted sweet finish. Unfortunately, we have an extremely limited quantity, and expect it to be gone soon.


Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China: Zhejiang, China is an eastern coastal province with a humid, subtropical climate. One of the most famous tea-producing regions in China, records of tea production here date back as early as the Wei and Jin Dynasties, 1500 years ago.


One of the few Dragon Well tea produced prior to the Qing Ming Festival (April 3rd) this year, teas produced prior to the Qing Ming Festival is most prized as the tea bushes have an entire winter to store up energy to grow new buds that are full of flavors. Due to the high cost of labor, most of the dragon wells are now produced by machines or a combination of machines and humans. only the highest quality teas like this batch are still produced by human hands entirely. Unique and special teas require good-tasting water for the best results. Please start by using good, fresh-tasting water, use 3-5 grams of tea per 6 oz of water, and infuse tea at approximately 70C-158F for one to 2 minutes. A thin porcelain cup or “gaiwan” is recommended. (always adjust the quantity of tea leaves according to the size of your teapot or cup or adjust steeping time and water temperature according to the intensity level desired)

  1. i wanted to taste the difference between Imperial and Superior Dragon Well so ordered both. Imperial is quite light and lovely. For every day drinking, i prefer the little stronger taste of Superior. But the Imperial for my meditation days is just right.

  2. Superior Dragon Well is my favorite tea. It is smooth and soothing, never bitter. Watch the water temperature for best results.

  3. I really enjoy this tea – twice a day!

  4. It’ my favorite green tea!
