Dragon Well

Named after the Dragon's Well landmark in Zhejiang, where the tea was first made, the tale told is that a drought was remedied when a monk summoned a dragon that brought rains to fill the village well, making it possible to grow and nourish what is considered the world's greatest tea. This cup is prized for its rich jade hue, floral notes and lingering sweetness.

Tea preparation is a matter of personal choice and preference, but here some guidelines to get you started.

  • Black Tea can be brewed in truly boiling water, usually steeped for 3-5 minutes.

  • Green Tea should be brewed with water between 160-175F and only steeped for 2-4 minutes.

  • White Tea can be brewed a bit warmer, at 175F and steeped for 3-5 minutes.

  • Oolong Tea is best brewed at 190F, but steeped longer than black tea for 5-8 minutes.

  • Rooibos Tea can also be brewed in fully boiling water and steeped indefinitely.
