Dragon Well Supreme Green Tea

特级龙井绿茶

The Origin Story

Of all the Dragon Well teas we have sourced in the past this year’s stands out for its truly classic flavour. Its unmistakable roasted chestnut flavour and decadent, creamy texture give you a taste of authentic Dragon Well at its best. Picked and expertly processed in early Spring, before the Qing Ming festival, on 25th March 2016. This excellent example of Dragon Well was fired and shaped in small batches to give a truly classic Dragon Well taste and attractive appearance. The small, neat and evenly shaped leaves produce a vibrant, fresh and satisfying infusion, perfect for spring and summer afternoons.

China - Zhejiang

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

To the east of Hangzhou small homesteads dot the hills and each spring produce their own Dragon Well. During the Qingming holiday we visit many farmers in this area and chat over a cup of tea. Returning year after year to a handful of masters, we select one tea to bring back that represents the best tasting Dragon Well of the season.

    This is creamy and full bodied indeed. I prefer Oolongs to greener teas usually but this keeps me coming back for another cup.

    Hi all,I've have tried many Dragon Wells in the past. And this one was surprise for me. Even though it‰'s from 2014 the taste is excellent! The smell of dry leaves is very fresh, green with notes of nuts.You can get about 5 very good infusions. Liquor is like a Heaven dew. It‰'s fresh, with very fine roast notes and hint of fresh garden peas. I love Dragon Well but THIS one takes me back to my tea beginnings.When the world of tea was pure, clean and tasty. With every sip, my mind goes to the faraway lands, full of Sunlight, green meadows and calming scent in the air.Thank you Jing Tea for this gift •

    After the brilliant 2012 harvest, I found I couldnt get on so well with 2013. Try as I might, I never succeeded in making infusions come out well. Luckily, the year was saved by the amazing Du Yun Spring. 2014 I'm happy to say is another story. Dragon Well Supreme again the comfort of my mornings - holding up even against the fabulous Gold - and that's saying something. Very pleased.

    Opening the bag youre hit with an almost overwhelming sweet fruit smell, like dried apricot. Once brewed the taste is incredibly well balanced. The chestnut flavour from the firing is just subtly lingering in the background and upfront is this lively sparkling fruit complexity. Smelling the underside of the gaiwan lid while brewing is also a treat, and has this sickly sweet fragrance to it which I found highly addictive and ended up nearly over brewed the tea. I say nearly over brewed, this tea being superb isnt that fussy and youd have to go far out of your way to make anything resembling a bad cup. Whats also incredible is how this holds up over the brews. I found the standard grade LJ that jing offers drops off quick but this fades gracefully over the subsequent brewing. Making this tea better value IMO. Hats off to Jing for sourcing such an incredible and beautiful tea. Simply Stunning!
