These exceptional tasting tea leaves are distinctively flat with a deep green colour. They are harvested 500m above sea level in the San Shai region of Taiwan. Even though Long Jing tea is usually associated with China, we selected these carefully hand-picked leaves as we think the taste is a bit special! Once picked, they are expertly pan fried, rolled and dried. The tea is roasted very soon after being picked, locking in the flavour. This gives it a light bodied and natural taste. It also means that it retains a high portion of antioxidants giving it many health benefits.

Best enjoyed by brewing at 80-90°C (or boil the kettle and leave for around 5 minutes before steeping). Brew for 2-4 minutes. Best served without milk.
Interesting fact: In March 2012, the China News Service reported that Dragon Well tea was worth more than it’s weight in gold when 500g of tea shoots sold for $28,000 (around £43,000)!
