Shi Feng dragon well is regarded as the best of West Lake dragon well, the cream of the crop. The beautiful scenery and rich history of Shi Feng mountain, or "Lion’s Peak", in West Lake, Huangzhou gives this tea a wonderful sensory experience as well as a romantic and spiritual appeal.
This tea is produced and signed by the revered tea master Mr. Weng Bingquan, who is the founder of the trademark Shi Gong of Shi Feng Long Jing tea company. Hand-crafted and produced in late March, this is an exceptional tea in every respect. Whereas dragonwell tends to be associated with nutty flavors, Shi Feng possesses an elegance with its unusually floral fragrance and huigan (回甘), a beautiful, sweet aftertaste, as if one were comfortably floating backward in time to pleasant, familiar moments. There is little question that this tea is an exceptional treat for the discriminating connoisseur, and once you taste true dragon well, you will never forget it.
