Description

Cultivar: Long Jing #43
Elevation: 750 - 800m
Harvest: Mingqian harvest, March 23rd, 2018

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. This micro-lot offers a classic Dragon Well character of pleasant grassiness balanced with an inviting toasted chestnut aroma arising from the Maillard reaction that occurs during the pan-firing of the tea leaves.


Origin

Xuan'En county, Hubei province, China
