Green tea from the Chinese village of Dragon Well (Lung Ching). Dragon Well's leaves are broad and flat, a result of laborious drying. There is something to show for this hard work: a refreshingly smooth, sweet and delicate tea, among the very best of Chinese greens. Full-leaf tea in portable, individually wrapped bags - superior taste and maximum convenience.
Dragon Well name derives from a local spring that legend has it is the lair of a dragon. Also known as Lung Ching, it is the best known of China's green teas, justifiably so. It had been presented as a tribute to many generations of Chinese emperors and was the tea served to Richard Nixon in his memorable encounter with Mao Tse-tung. In local parlance, it is praised for its "four uniques": jade color, vegetative aroma, mellow chestnut flavor, and singular shape.
