A very easy daily-drinker green tea, that almost every foreigner in China falls in love with.
ABOUT THE TEA
Longjing (龙井), or "Dragon Well" is one of the most famous tea styles of China due to its historic popularity and a smooth profile that is easy to drink and understand for even non-regular tea drinkers.
Our DRAGON WELL is the so-called Dafo Longjing (大佛龙井), or "Big Buddha Dragon Well" variety. It is harvested in early spring in Xinchang (新昌), Zhejiang Province. This region's Longjing tea used to be served and offered to the monks of the local Buddhist monastery, hence the name of the tea.
WHEN DO WE DRINK IT?
As a smooth, easily drinkable green tea, it has a good amount of caffeine to give you a mild boost. It is the best stuff for early morning or after-lunch tea sessions -- especially during warmer months.
