Organic Dragon Well Supreme Green Tea

有机龙井绿茶

The Origin Story

China’s most famous green tea, Dragon Well is also known as Longjing. During the Qing Dynasty it was declared an 'imperial' tea by the emperor and has remained in the spotlight ever since. With such a high price to its name, the risk of fakes is prevalent throughout China, but a genuine Longjing can only come from protected areas within Hangzhou. The youngest, freshest buds are picked in the Spring before the Qingming festival and masterfully pan-fried, giving the leaf its iconic 'spear' shape and nutty flavour. This process can be adopted by any tea producer throughout China, but it is the rich soils and terroir of the protected area of Hangzhou that imparts a rich, velvety- thickness and texture that is truly unique and cannot be faked.

Our Organic Dragon Well Supreme 2019 is a beautiful loose leaf green tea from its authentic home in Hangzhou with a clear expression of the true taste of Longjing - amazingly thick and smooth, singing with supreme chestnut notes.

China - Zhejiang

Young, plump buds are picked early – pre-Qingming – for this tea.

This year’s batch comes from Mr Wen’s organic tea garden in Chun'an County, Hangzhou - the official and protected birthplace of Dragon Well tea. Near to Thousand Island Lake, this beautiful garden is surrounded by lush, green forest in an area that is home to the traditional Longjing cultivar (Jiukeng) – an ancient tea cultivation area dating back thousands of years.
