The temperate climate and heavy winter rains of Hangzhou lend a sweet tenderness to this famously nutty style. The young leaves and buds, picked in early spring, are pan fired and expertly pressed into their trademark flat shape.
We love the aroma of roasted chestnuts, brothy body, and pleasant bitterness on the finish. There's hardly a better place to start when it comes to Chinese greens!
While authentic Dragon Well (aka Long Jing) such as this comes from areas around Hangzhou, China, in many cases the name misleadingly refers to the cultivar of the tea plant from which the style is made, which is also called Dragon Well. This is the real deal.
