Dragon Well is one of China's 10 most famous teas. It's a pan-baked tea over hot woks. The leaves are flattened during the heating process. To be authentic, Dragon Well,as known as Long Jing, must be grown in the Zhejiang province of China.
Green teas picked before the Qing Ming Festival on April 5th are referred to as “Ming Qian Tea. With harvests typically beginning in mid-March, these early spring green teas are made up of the first leaf buds to sprout after the dormant winter season.
After a winter recuperation, the buds store the most natural sugars, and the smallest amount of astringent tannins. In addition, the temperature is generally low in early spring,which leads to a low yield,making the prices for these teas high.
