The most famous green tea in China, Dragon Well Green tea stands out for its unique and classic flavor. An excellent choice of mouthwatering flavor of roasted chestnuts, with a soft sweet finish.
Like most other Chinese green tea, Dragon Well tea leaves are roasted early in processing right after picking, to stop the natural oxidation process. The oxidation process for Dragon Well Tea is cut short by hand skilled “firing” (heating the leaves in special woks.)
When steeped, the tea produces a yellow-green color. Dragon Well contains vitamin C, amino acids, and, like most finer Chinese green teas, has one of the highest concentrations of catechins among teas. (Catechins are a type of flavonoid found in certain foods; several forms exist, but all are potent antioxidants that may help protect you from potentially damaging chemicals called free radicals.)
The traditional way to drink Dragon Well is to sprinkle a pinch of leaves in the bottom of a tall glass and pour on near-boiling water. Most of the leaves will sink to the bottom of the glass; gently blow aside any remaining at the top and sip the tea as it cools. The strength of the infusion will increase towards the bottom of the glass, at which point you can top up with more water.
The Da Cha Teas One Cup Tea Pot is an ideal way to watch the beautiful dance of leaves unfurl in your cup, and have a foolproof brew each time.
Dragon Well is not a monolithic tea. There are variations even within each crop for year to year. This Spring 2015 however, count on the fresh, sweet nutty chestnut flavor to be refreshing and satisfying.
