Award-winning Pre-ming High Mountain Long Jing Dragon Well Green Tea
Dragon Well green tea is one of the most famous teas in China, referred to in Chinese as "Long Jing", which literally translates as Dragon Well. It originated in West Lake of Hangzhou, and is now cultivated in other parts of Zhejiang province and other regions of China, resulting in tea that can vary significantly in quality and taste. This is a top grade Dragon Well harvested around Qing Ming or pre-ming. The varietal is the local varietal called Qunti Zhong, which is the original historical grown varietal than the commonly grown Long Jing #43 varietal. This tea is truly an excellent tea in both style and taste.
