Supreme West Lake Long Jing Dragon Well

Supreme West Lake Long Jing Dragon Well

In stock: 16

Origin: China


The tea garden from which we source our Supreme West Lake Long Jing is located high within the mountains of Hangzhou. For generations, the family that works this land has crafted exceptional Dragonwell tea by hand, using completely organic farming methods, and following pan-firing techniques handed down from one generation to the next.

This batch is picked from the very tender first spring shoots. Each tea leaf was meticulously hand-picked in late March, then just as carefully roasted by hand on wood fired pans.

Our Supreme Long Jing tea offers a subtler and grassier high-quality finish than mainstream Long Jing tea picked later in the season. These flat and smooth special-grade tea leaves (resembling light pale green pine needles) brew a tea with a pale green color, wonderfully fragrant scent, and a refreshing floral taste.

One of the best tasting Dragon Well teas I have tried. I get good flavor for 3 infusions. It may be a bit pricey, but to my taste buds it is well worth it!

Very nice green tea, not a distinctive flavor but still nice. Pleasant aroma. Not my favorite but still nice.

The Supreme Dragon Well is the best tea I've tasted. Truly a superior tea. But, is it worth the extra cost? You better believe it is. Maybe too pricey for everyday, but definitely a tea you must try. My tea friend and I did a taste test comparing both Dragon Well teas. Supreme Dragon Well was the clear winner.

Last year I bought this tea and very satisfied. I drink all kinds of the tea during four seasons and always buy some very good West lake long jing dragon well in the May. The smell and taste of this tea is fresh and gentle sweet. And it is organic which is important for green tea.

This year I tried the standard dragon well and found the supreme is much better!!!!!!!!

This "Supreme West Lake Long Jing Dragon Well" tea is good... nutty fragrance and taste, and leaves I like to nibble on when brewing "grandpa style". But is it worthy of the more than double price of standard Long Jing? I don't think so. The leaves appear to be in better condition (less broken, more uniform, better color), but the flavor is the same on my tongue. If you're a connoisseur, please do try the Supreme West Lake and let us know why you think it's better; perhaps I just need to learn how to appreciate whatever this tea offers. Until then, I'm with reviewer Hasan.

Very nice and clean tasting tea. In my opinion not worth the extra cost compared to the standard dragon well though, which I will be ordering instead as I drink a lot of tea

This tea is worth five stars and the higher price. Fragrant and rich with that distinctive Dragon Well flavor. Love it!
