Dragon Well Green Tea, (Lung Ching)

This extraordinary green tea comes from the city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. The flat leaves are harvested in early spring when the leaves are full of aroma and have a silvery shine. Dragon Well is prepared using traditional methods from the most tender tea leaves. These leaves produce a soothing and refreshing champagne colored liquid full of freshness. Semi-sweet in taste and orchid-like in smell, Lung Ching is one of the most famous green tea in China. Free shipping with purchase over $60.

Liked this best in the sampler. Decided to purchase some gunpowder at a lesser cost and decided the additional cost was worth it.

Very good, brew temp matters
April 9, 2015
Very very good green tea. When I use boiling water it tastes more green, less floral. When I use just below boiling water it has a floral aroma and lighter taste, I prefer less hot water for this tea. However you do it, its good (unless you just don't know what you're doing).

According to "The Moss Report":
One important hint, however, was the distribution of catechins in the five tea types
(dragonwell, gunpowder, jasmine pearl, sencha, and gykuro) analyzed and their
constituent chemicals. For me, this solved the riddle of which tea to buy. While other
green tea types varied widely in catechin content, one tea type was uniformly rich in
antioxidants. This was dragonwell (Chinese= Longjing) from Hangzhou in Zhejiang
province. This is a famous variety of tea in China.

"In the CUNY test, samples of dragonwell tea contained from 86 to 175 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) of catechins. By contrast, jasmine tea (although delicious to drink) sometimes contained as little as 21 mg/kg. If you are drinking green tea not just for the flavor but for its health-promoting qualities, there is a danger that jasmine tea might miss the desired goal."

It is delicious too!

I alternate this one with a white to keep the taste buds happy. This green never fails the taste test but steeps are limited to one brew for me.

Lovely green tea
August 5, 2014
I am hesitant to buy green teas. They are so finicky on their temp and time to steep and they seem to always be bitter. I took the plunge and bought this one based on some of the other reviews. I am pleased! This tea hasn't been bitter so far.

Good for the price

Although this Dragon Well lacks the bracing complexity and crisp finish of a high-grade longjing, it is well worth the price for an everyday "drinking" tea that would not be wasted accompanying food.

The Dragon Well teas that I drink regularly are in the $8-15/oz range, a general grade in which the tea's special characteristics become most notable. I have a connection with a teamaker in Hangzhou who provides a friend with the highest quality of handcrafted Dragon Well, so I'm not a stranger to this tea.

At $8.98 for 4oz, I'd happily recommend the Enjoying Tea Dragon Well as an introduction to the type for persons who are learning about Chinese teas and to accompany food.

I brewed it at a ratio of 1/2 gram of dry tea per ounce capacity of my vessel (I brewed it in a 4oz gaiwan, a 5oz yokode, and a 15oz "tall glass"), all at 170-175 degrees. I gave the tea a quick "rinse" which I discarded for the gaiwan and yokode brewing while I merely swirled the dry tea into the water of the tall glass. The gaiwan and yokode infusions were about 15 seconds for the first drinking infusion, subsequent infusions were about 15 secs longer each time. The tall glass brewing was much longer, waiting until most of the tea fell to the bottom of the glass.

In each case there was nothing overtly objectionable (no "fishiness" or unusual off tastes/aromas), but it is similar to other lower grade teas in that they leave you thinking "Yup, that's green tea alright" but without the desire to pursue the matter further.

This is the best green tea I've tried. It has a smooth, almost buttery taste to it that is unlike any other green tea I've tried. You really should try it at least once.

Our household favorite
December 2, 2013
This tea has become the household favroite amongst the green tea drinkers. While we prefer to make our green tea very strong, this tea is nice at any strength. This variety has a nice, crisp flavor with a floral quality. Goes great with honey and lemon, or just plain.

Very good Dragon Well Green Tea

This is one of the best Dragon Well Teas I have tasted. I would recommend it to my friends and tea shop owners to try. It has the distinctive taste and aroma I have experienced in the past from future
purchases from China.

Nice tea. I am able to make three (sometimes four) pots of tea from the single serving of tea. I start the morning with a good strong pot of tea and as the day goes on it becomes lighter and it doesn't keep me up at night.

Dragon Well Green Tea (8 oz)
December 28, 2012
The tea arrived quicker than I thought it would and in good shape with few tea leaves broken. Decent cost for shipping. The tea has a mellow chestnut flavor to it and appears to be fairly high quality. I was able to get two steeps out of the tea, although the second steep lost the chestnut flavor. This was a good experience and good purchase.

It's a decent tea taste wise, although I would prefer more fragrant. I also like the fact that it contains big pieces of tea leaves.

Mmmm... Green Tea.
June 1, 2012
This tea was great, it pours a light green/yellow color and taste much better then the usual green teas I have tried. One piece of advice though, if you are not the type to drink green tea then this might taste rather bitter to you because I asked others to rate it after pouring them a cup of tea, and the verdict was that it was a little bitter.

This green tea is not supposed to be the top quaility harvesting but is good quality. I don't know the difference between the taste of unbroken pieces to top notch longer flat pieces. If prides keep going up my sipping will decrease. This is a good seller and product is as stated.

This is my favorite green tea. It's slightly buttery caffeinated taste, with a dark champagne color( first brew) that makes it unique in his category.

Dragon Well is my favorite breakfast tea or anytime of the day tea - - mild and mellow yet refreshing. Brewed for 2 minutes in 180 deg. water - the first brew is a little stronger, as with most teas, the second and third brews are excellent!

best green tea & service

Ever since I tasted dragon well green tea in China, I've kept up the habit of a daily pot of tea. The quality is equal to what I bought in China. The price was competitive, and I received my new package within a couple of days.
