Details

Origin of the name: West Lake Dragon Well

'West Lake' refers to a beautiful lake in the Hangzhou surrounded by Pagoda-topped hills rise over willow-lined waters as boats drift slowly through a vignette of leisurely charm. As the very definition of classical beauty in China, West Lake continues to astonish every single visitor it attracts. 'Dragon Well' refers to an ancient village southwest of the West Lake, where many small family-owned tea farms are situated. Our artisanal West Lake Dragon Well green loose tea leaves are sourced directly from some of those families.

Cold brew green tea

Slow cooking is popular these days, but did you know you can cold brew green tea? We tried with this Dragon Well green tea, and the result was amazing. There was absolutely no bitterness, and it draws out all the sweetness from mother nature. Watch the video to see how easy it is to do it yourself:

 

Tea region

West Lake Dragon Well green tea is from one of the main tea regions in China; the Hangzhou West Lake region in Zhejiang province. Many tea plantations can be found among the hills, each producing Chinese Dragon Well loose tea.

Produced for more than 1000 years in this area of China, this tea possesses four qualities that set it above other teas: emerald green color, aromatic flavor, overall appearance, and crisp and refreshing taste.

Harvesting Dragon Well green tea

The harvest time for Dragon Well tea is a short six weeks, with the first two weeks producing the superior grade teas. Once picked, the loose tea leaves must be hand roasted the same day. A roaster uses his or her bare hands in order to feel both the heat and the dryness of the leaves. Once roasted, the leaves are ready for immediate consumption.

I love it!
It tastes, and smells really nice. I think it's the best for warm, spring or summer days (especially mornings), when you have time to chill out, and drink the tea slowly, so you could focus on the taste.
It's a good way to start your day, cause it will calm you down, and give you some good energy. I felt much better after drinking it.
It also looks nice, so you can prepare it for your guests.

In my country it's quite hard to find a good green tea, but now I have a verified foreign shop to order it from, and I'm sure I won't regret buying here.
Thanks :) (Posted on 5/4/2016)

The tea smells great! Definitely fresh. So happy that I have received the real thing! I used to buy my own tea when I was studying in China. Since I am back in Europe, finding good quality Chinese tea is so difficult. I tried many importers without success. Your product is definitely kosher and the smell just brings me back to China. Thank you so much. (Posted on 7/12/2015)

This tea has a beautiful vivid green color, with a strong, fresh toasty vegetal scent. The steeped leaves open full and fast, clearly displaying it's leaf quality. The aroma of this tea is vegetal, roasted, nutty almost porridge-like. The spring 2013 batch doesn't disappoint. Teasenz' is still the best Longjing I've tasted. Nutty, slightly roasted, slightly vegetal, but deliciously smooth. I ordered 500g and finished all in a few months. It's my everday/all day tea and I am never tired of it. I've found the leaves to be very forgiving of the temperature and steep time (It won't burn or taste off, but don't steep at boiling point though!) A tasty and very affordable tea for everyday use, given that you can steep it so often. A very distinct, bold green, satisfying taste, even for those lovers of stronger more oxidized teas.

Thank you Teasenz for this wonderful Dragonwell tea and the quick response to all my questions. I ordered 5 kg of this tea for reselling in my own tea shop and it's selling well. I will order again in about 2 months.

My all time favorite green tea! Dragonwell green tea is a simple tea to brew, and it isn't very picky like some of the others. It has a good grassy/chestnut hint, and the aroma is very unique. I love to observe the jade colored reflection from the cup. Dragonwell green tea is both very flavorful, and pleasing to look at while drinking. I highly recommend this tea to green tea drinkers! One advice from me would be to don't oversteep this tea, as it's already very flavorful. Oversteeping would make this tea taste a bit too grassy. (Posted on 1/7/2013)
