For centuries tea has been a symbol of inner harmony, especially in the time-honored country of Japan. Indeed, the Ancient Japanese honed the craft and the art of the tea ceremony. The Orient's appreciation for tea is even viewed in its rich, ancient tea legends that were designed to instruct people as to the methods of unlocking their own inner peace, their Zen. The Samurai and the Tea Master is just such a tale that capitalizes on the power of inner tranquility over outward strength. The story is set in Ancient Japan, and the hero is not a Samurai, but a tea master.Read More
Imperial Dragonwell ( Long Jing )
One of the ten most famous teas in China. It is said that Long Jing tea is the beauty among all tea.
Fresh green 'sword-like' shaped leaves, Dragon Well tea is sweet, smooth and well-rounded with no hint of bitterness. The buttery mouthfeel and subtle nutty taste. Light colored liquor with a lightly floral aftertaste. It has a delicate fragrance, a slightly sweet flavor and a silky texture. The liquor is velvety and its chestnut aroma lingers for a long time in the mouth.
This superior quality tea is from Jhejiang Province, China.
Like most other green teas, Dragon Well tea should be steeped in cooler water than black or oolong teas. A temperature of 80°C (176°F) is ideal.

A very nice tea! The signature long leaves were very pleasant.
This tea is OK. It’s not unpleasant but nothing great either. It reminds me of the teas that I bought from Winners\Homesense. For a few bucks more you can get something amazing.
My favourite type of green tea, the quality is excellent. Very smooth
