Long Jing, Lung Ching
Dragon Well (Long Jing 龙井) Green tea is in no doubt the most famous and loved Chinese green teas.
Our Dragon Well tea is produced in the Zhe-Jiang region, well known for its rich water resources and production of some of the finest Chinese teas. This Dragon Well is harvested from an organically certified plantation on a high mountain, 1800 meters above the sea level. Smooth flattened tea leaves produce a green jade colour when brewed. It has a unique roasted chestnut aroma, silky texture and beautifully refreshing flavour adored by many. It is also an accessible tea for those trying green tea for the first time.
Watch the jade colour tea leaves unfolding when brewing in a clear glass pot.
We offer 3 quality grades (High, premium and exclusive) in a choice of 2 sizes (50 or 100 gm packs).
Our High grade is comparable to teas nominated as top quality in some Australian stores we have sampled. Our exclusive grade is at the level above which a regular tea drinker from the region where the tea was produced would not easily distinguish further improvement in quality.
We take special precautions to purchase new season stock, air transport and store refrigerated to preserve original tea quality.

A gentle and delicate tea that is calming to my spirit. The exclusive grade contains only perfect whole leaves that are far superior in quality to any tea I have seen before!
Bought th tester pack and I have to say, this is one of my favourite. At first I didn't quite like smell but after a while I fell in love wih it. It reminds me of roasted nuts maybe? Very relaxing and pleasant drink. Highly recommended.
Outstanding tea. Very fresh and superbly packed. Exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended to anyone who likes green tea. The quality is far above any other tea I have purchased in Australia.
