Product Description

Dragon Well tea China green: Long Jing or Lung Ching

Dragon Well tea is produced in Zhejiang province and is widely considered to be China’s most famous green tea. A stunning, flat needle-like tea formed by being pressed flat by hand. It is dried using the classic pan firing method which retains some moisture and gives the tea a slightly nutty toastiness. It has a delicious, slightly sweet, full bodied almondy hint with just sufficient astringency to refresh in a most satisfying way. Infuse for two to three minutes.

    A wonderful tea in taste and sight “This is a delicate tasting tea. Perfect for when you need a tea but are worried about the amount of black tea you have drunk in the day so far.”
    Good if slightly unusual “I have been drinking Long Jing for many years and from different sources. This batch has a nice look and smell to it. It has the nutty Long Jing flavour however in addition a slight tanginess I haven’t had with Long Jing before. A good tea for every day.”

Sourcing our tea

This tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This Dragon Well tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    Product: Smooth and refreshing.
    Service: This is the first time my wife and I have drunk loose leaf green tea and I am delighted by the difference between it and supermarket tea bags.
    Vendor response: The Green Earl Grey is made with a China Chun Mee tea. It has natural oil of bergamot, not the nature identical flavouring used by many commercial blends that has a rather more one-dimensional taste.
