Dragon Well Green Tea

龙井绿茶

The Origin Story

Dragon Well is China's most famous green tea, produced in the hills around Hangzhou's West Lake. This perfect introduction to the unique taste of Dragon Well combines grassy spring freshness and hazelnut sweetness.

Pan firing gives Dragon Well a unique nutty flavour and its iconic flattened spear-like shape. The secret to perfecting Dragon Well lies in the striking the balance between allowing the flavour of the spring tea leaves to shine through and adding those delicious nutty notes. Once you've tried it you’ll see green tea differently.

This is a fantastic green tea for everyday drinking. If you are looking for what to try next? We'd suggest our Anji Green or Dragon Well Supreme.

China - Zhejiang

Zhejiang is the most famous province in China for producing green tea.

The hills surrounding Hangzhou's West Lake are the traditional home of this famous tea. Extremely fertile and with an excellent climate, this area of Zhejiang is renowned for producing many of China's most sought after green teas.

    Pleasant but not nearly as good as last years
    Was a little disappointed with the 2013 batch. It tastes slightly over fired to me. The first brew is OK but I'm not a fan of the taste of the second brew. Last years was far better. The overly roasted flavor just seems to stomp on the sweet subtlety. Hopefully next years will be better!

    I find this tea too sensitive. I think the first brew is excellent and as others before me have commented, very nutty and silky. I find the later infusions lack flavour despite trying to brew at a cooler temp. I would say first brew 5 star, later brews 2 stars. Overall a 3 star
