Dragon Well is a pan-fired green tea that is produced by "flat-frying" tea leaves in a hot pan until shaped into blades and dried. The heat and tossing action carried out in pan-firing tea leaves initiates the maillard reaction, resulting in a pleasant toasty aroma and nutty sweetness. This Dragon Well is comprised of tender buds and leaves harvested during the early spring Mingqian time, making for a rich, brothy and sweet infusion. Dragon Well is a well known, Chinese "tribute tea" once given in tribute to the emperor of the time. Made from the traditional cultivar called Long Jing #43 (literally, "Dragon Well #43"), this micro-lot offers the classic Dragon Well character of pleasant grassiness balanced with hints of toasted pecan and green banana.
