SKU: first-flush-dragonwell-green-tea Categories: , , ,

Introducing Dragonwell Green Tea, a true embodiment of the title "king of green teas" that has stood the test of time. Crafted with the utmost precision using the traditional 'wok-fired' technique, this tea showcases thin flattened yellow-green blades, exuding an enchanting aroma of rich, nutty notes and toasted chestnuts.

As a first-flush Spring tea, our Dragonwell selection captivates with a taste profile that is truly extraordinary. Uniquely umami with subtle hints of sweetness, every sip offers a harmonious balance that tantalizes the senses. Beyond its remarkable flavor, this tea is also abundant in polyphenol antioxidants, providing numerous health benefits and gut microbiome-support benefits.

Our Dragonwell tea is exclusively grown and produced in the revered region surrounding Hangzhou, China—a place deeply intertwined with the legacy of tea. With close ties to the area's esteemed farms and tea masters, we have the privilege of securing first access to the finest first-flush batches of Dragonwell each Spring. This ensures that our tea upholds the highest standards of quality and authenticity.

This versatile green tea can be conveniently brewed in a glass cup with hot water, allowing the leaves to gracefully unfurl and infuse the water with their vibrant flavors. Alternatively, for a refreshing twist on hot afternoons, Dragonwell works well for cold-brewing. Simply infuse with room temperature water, then place in the fridge overnight (about 8 hours) to create an iced tea beverage that rejuvenates and satisfies.

‘Longjing 43’ Vs. Seed-Propagated ‘Qunti Zhong’

Now, let's explore the distinction between our two exceptional cultivar options: 'Longjing 43' and 'seed-propagated qunti zhong'. 'Longjing 43' is renowned for its tender leaves and delicate flavor, delivering a smoother and more subtle taste experience. On the other hand, 'seed-propagated qunti zhong' boasts robust leaves and a bolder flavor profile, offering a more pronounced intensity and complexity. Whichever cultivar you choose, you can expect an exceptional tea-drinking experience that showcases the unique characteristics of Dragonwell.
