Description: Organic Dragonwell (Lung Ching or Longjing in local parlance) is one of China's most famous green teas, originating from Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. This tea has a very distinctive shape: smooth and perfectly flattened along the inside vein of the leaf, the result of highly skilled shaping in a hot wok. This process, known as pan-firing or pan-frying, was perfected in China by tea masters over many centuries. It gives the tea an inviting, toasty aroma. Our fine Dragonwell green tea also has a sweet, rounded flavor, perhaps reminiscent of freshly roasted white corn. Full, nutty and buttery texture, and pleasantly dry finish. A truly satisfying cup of tea. Our organic teas are processed without using any synthetic fertilizer or pesticide. This tea is also part of the Ethical Tea Partnership, which is a tea industry initiative designed to monitor and regulate the living and working conditions on tea estates around the world.
