Dragon Well Tea Caddy

龙井绿茶

Grown in the hills just outside Hangzhou, our Dragon Well is a perfect introduction to the unique taste of this celebrated green tea. Expertly crafted by tea master Mr Chen, the fresh leaves are pan-fired, then shaped into beautiful spears that elicit a sweet, lightly roasted chestnut flavour. The name Dragon Well is a direct translation of the Mandarin name Long Jing, which refers to the myth of an ancient dragon that appears in the water of a well, near to the site where this tea was first created.
