Regular price $15.80

China's most famous tea! Dragon Well, (Longjing), is grown in the fertile Longjing mountain area of Hangzhou, southwest of the West Lake in the Zhejiang province. This mountainous region holds the cold currents from the north and the warm currents from the south, resulting in long periods of cloud cover. These ideal growing conditions produce what may be considered the best tea in China.

These flat, smooth leaves steep to an emerald green liquor, with a distinctive sweetness.

Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2 minutes.

1 Tbsp Longjing (Dragon Well) tea leaves
1 cup water
2 Tbsp plus 1 « tsp cornstarch
