Dragonwell Lung Ching
Organic Green Tea
Prized for its unique, flat, sword-shaped leaves and jade green color, this special tea exhibits a fresh, clean aroma and a gentle, mellow flavor. Single sourced directly from a family owned farm.
This is the top of the line, Imperial grade Organic Dragonwell. Direct from the source, we buy it in small batches so it's fresh. We believe this variety is worth the extra cost.
About This Tea
Heady bouquet. Clean, fresh with full green tea flavor and flowery notes, tending astringent.
Country of Origin
Keep adding hot water until the flavor is exhausted. Alternatively you can re-steep the brew and add an extra minute.
This is the tea I go to most often. I wrote a review on this once before, but here's an addendum.
It is better than any of the local teas I can find in Florida, so I order it online and have it shipped. Once, only once, did I get a better tea. But...it was from a friend with relatives in Taiwan and he travels there every year. He brought me back their ELITE tea one time and gotta admit, it was special. So, if you have friends or relatives in China or Taiwan, you're in luck. Otherwise, this tea is pretty damn good!
I've been drinking another brand of dragonwell for a few years and have never found one I liked better than that one... until this one. I do have to steep this a little longer than other dragonwells, but the depth of flavor is much better with this compared to any other I've tried.
This is my favorite green tea. I once read that this flavor is the most popular tea in China, too. If you want a great green tea with mega health benefits, look no further than this one. The Whistling Kettle has a winner. I've tried others and you WON'T find better. Buck up and pay the bit extra, 'cause it's worth it. Sorry if I sound like a commercial, but when you figure the cost per cup, the extra amount is minimal.
I've gone through a bunch of Lung Ching brands, sampling about 10 different types. This one by far is the best I've found. Worth the extra $$$
