About this tea

Tea Story

This most renowned of all Chinese green teas comes from the mountains near Hangzhou, in Zhejiang province. Legend has it that a benevolent dragon resides in a local well where this tea was created several centuries ago. It’s still made the same way it was then: the leaves are hand-rolled in a hot, steep-sided pan. This “pan-firing” method requires great care to match the temperatures with the size and tenderness of the leaves. When done with skill, and when using leaves from the Spring growth, the result is a rich and nutty-tasting green tea, with natural hints of fresh corn and vegetables.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 2 minutes (180° F) before steeping tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
