Longjing tea (simplified Chinese: 龙井茶; traditional Chinese: 龍井茶 ) -literally translated as Dragon Well tea, is a variety of pan-roasted green tea originally from the area of Longjing Village near Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province, China. It is produced mostly by hand and renowned for its high quality, earning it the China Famous Tea title.

Our Dragon Well Tea is procured from small tea farmer in Dibrugarh, Assam. Assam and is grown without use of any fertilizer or pesticides.

Like most other Chinese green tea, Longjing tea leaves are roasted early in processing (after picking) to stop the natural oxidation process, which is a part of creating black and oolong teas. The actions of these enzymes are stopped by "firing" (heating in pans) or by steaming the leaves before they completely dry out. As is the case with other green teas (and white teas), Longjing tea leaves experience minimal oxidation. When steeped, the tea produces a yellow-green color. The tea contains vitamin C, amino acids, and, like most finer Chinese green teas, has one of the highest concentrations of catechins among teas.

Like most other wild dragon teas, our Himalaya2Home Wild Dragon Tea is prepared by pan frying process. Roasted early in processing (after picking) to stop the natural oxidation process, which is a part of creating black and oolong teas. The actions of these enzymes are stopped by "firing" (heating in pans) or by steaming the leaves before they completely dry out. As is the case with other green teas (and white teas), Longjing tea leaves experience minimal oxidation. When steeped, the tea produces a yellow-green color.

Brewing Notes

Place 1 ball in your teapot (ideally a clear glass for maximum visual effect) and add freshly boiled water that has cooled slightly to approx. 86C. Do not use boiling water as this may scald the leaves and prevent them from releasing all their flavor. You can use the leaves for 3 more brews and can later chew those leaves.
