Sleeping Dragon green tea is grown at 800 meters above sea level in the mountainous Fujian province. The tightly rolled leaves and silvery fuzzy buds give this tea its signature shape and name. In the cup, it delivers a soft, fruity sweetness enfolded by a rich smokey note similar to gunpowder, but more complex and crisp in the finish. Sleeping Dragon remains a great cup for a green tea novice or those who oppose the grassy character of some varieties.

Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

Lore

Dragons are famous for their love of treasure. In the myth of Heracles, they guard golden apples; in the myth of Jason, they guard the golden fleece. They’re featured in Beowolf, ancient Norse myths, and countless other stories today. In many of these myths, the heroes fight to slay their enemies. In others, perhaps with more astute heroes, however, the protagonists choose stealthier means, waiting until the dragon is asleep to sneak past. Our tea is much easier to obtain, but if you’re still looking for a sliver of dragon’s smoke in your cup, Sleeping Dragon will fit your fancy.
