$35.00

As the morning mist clung to Shi Feng's peaks, young Shao asked his mentor, while sipping a vibrant brew: – "Shifu, why does Dragon Well stand above most other teas?"

Lao Cha replied: –"Observe, Shao. Each leaf of this tea, flat and poised, was pan-fired to lock in a melody of nutty sweetness, crafted in a day’s tight dance”
 
Tasting again, Shao's eyes twinkled. – "A swift dance for lasting flavor!"
 
– "Exactly," – Lao Cha nodded, – "a day’s labor for a sip that echoes through centuries."

 

Known for its unique flat and smooth leaves, Dragon Well stands out from other green teas with its sweet aftertaste and nutty flavor. Our "Dragon Well" Green Tea received the Gold Medal at 'The Golden Leaf Awards' in 2019, distinguishing itself among other notable teas. 

This exceptional tea hails from a region renowned for its pristine environment and rich tea-growing heritage, where traditional methods of cultivation and harvesting are preserved. The culture and traditions of this area are deeply interwoven with the art of tea-making, ensuring that tea reflects the area's natural purity.

"Dragon Well" is crafted through a rigorous process all within one day. It begins with the early morning harvest, where leaves are handpicked to ensure the highest quality. The leaves are then gently withered to reduce moisture before being swiftly pan-fired and shaped. This method preserves the delicate substances within the leaves, enhancing their flavor and aroma.

The resulting tea is a testament to the craftsmanship involved in its production. The leaves typically feature one bud with one to two leaves, showcasing a blend of dark yellow and soft green hues. Once steeped, the tea presents a clear, green-yellow liquor, exuding a light scent of roasted beans and fresh blossoms. Its taste is both refreshing and invigorating, marked by undertones of roasted chestnut that define a truly remarkable "Dragon Well" experience.

For an optimal experience, we suggest steeping this tea in a tall glass, a method that not only allows you to enjoy the aesthetic pleasure of watching the leaves unfurl but also enhances the extraction of the tea’s subtle flavors. This visual spectacle has been cherished since ancient times, often inspiring poets and artists who frequented the imperial courts to create works that continue to captivate us.

Enjoy the depth and richness of our award-winning Long Jing, a green tea that not only delights the palate but also captures the essence of its storied origin.

The Best

When friends ask why I buy premium tea, I have them smell a dry green tea bag from the grocery store. Then I open a tin of this Long Jing. They are blown away. I never tire of this tea! Amazing!

Par Excellence

After seeking a path for better Tea and a more mindful approach, I have found both the Tea ("Dragon Well" Long Jing Green Tea) and the Tea Company/Stewards who share their goodness and knowledge. "Dragon Well" is now my new morning Tea! Path of Cha is par excellence for Tea drinkers. This was my first purchase, but "a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." - Lao Tzu

Smooth and Delicate.

I made my first purchase of the Dragon Well tea from Path of Cha. I like the light, and delicate flavor so much that I’ve made a 2nd purchase straight away. I can’t wait to gift them to my friends.

I've had Dragonwell tea from many places and this one is one of the best! Just the right balance and as mentioned, no bitterness. This is my every morning tea--and definitely a great way to start my day.
