We know that fresh tea leaves contain plenty of tea polyphenols which has the function of weight loss of green tea. However, based on different producing craft, they will be reduced in different volume. According to a document from Hunan Agricultural University, there are at least 20% to 23% of tea polyphenols in green tea. As the process of fermentation is removed in the making of green tea, catechin and tea polyphenols in green tea could be highly contained. Tea polyphenols has the function of anti-radiation.

The reputation of Shifeng Dragon Well Tea is closely related with Emperor Qianlong. He once visited the south of Yangtze River six times, during which he investigated the quality of tea leaves four times. He enjoyed tasting tea, writing poets and learning to pick tea leaves. However, one day, when he was picking tea buds, the trusted follower reported that his mother was in poor health. Once heard of this news, he was so anxious that he immediately put the handful of tea buds into pocket and traveled day and night to return to the capital. His sudden appearance and greeting really surprised his mother so that she turned into a good mood. She realized that a fragrant aroma was blowing on her face and at once asked what it was. Emperor Qianlong carefully smelled and found that a stream of fragrant aroma came from his pocket. He touched his pocket at will and the handful of tea buds from Hugong Temple, Longjing Village, Hangzhou had been dried and gave out a kind of rich fragrance. Therefore, he ordered attendants to brew it. After drinking three cups, his mother became pleasant and refreshing. For this reason, he entitled the eighteen tea trees before Hugong Temple under Shifeng Mountain as “royal tea tree”.

You're reviewing: Organic Superfine Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea
* Required Fields
I think 2014 Superfine Longjing is an excellent tea. Last year I rated the Premium Longjing as slightly below it, but this year I must switch them around. The reason is that I think the Superfine Organic is overly-toasted, and that the natural tea flavors are being overridden by the heavy handed toasting. That said, the tea is still very enjoyable and worth trying.
The superfine grade of the long jing is definitely worth the few extra dollars compared to the premium grade. The taste is strong and crispy and the leaves are not grumbled or fragmented in the superfine grade, even the color looks more fresh and green.
First thoughts – the wonderful sensations of freshness! Both aroma and taste of the dry leaf are buttery and vegetal (like fresh spring peas or green beans). First sip produces a complex, smooth flavor with a nice balance between that green vegetal and a slight touch of natural sweetness. This is a wonderful tea. I even resteeped a few times and chilled the tea overnight to enjoy cold the next day.
Received this with the 2014 spring sampler. I wasn't sure how it would be different from the premium version but it is sweeter and more vegetable flavored. I used the same amount as recommended using a gaiwan this is much more crisp and flavorful. I could feel the energy enter my body
I recently got a glass gaiwan which at first seemed something that I would use often but at first try I noticed that it’s hard to handle as its rim doesn’t fold outwards like with my other porcelain ones. Nevertheles, I use it every now and then, especially when I have a beatiful leaf to look at while steeping. This Long Jing is a beauty, the leaves are more wholesome than any other I’ve had so far and the smell or roasted chestnut is amazing. Since my glass gaiwan is 4 Oz in volume i used a whole 5gr sample bag to prepare it according to Teavivre’s instruction, and after a first rinse just by the quick sniff I was sure that this wasn’t an ordinary Dragon Well. Quick first steep brought out clear and bright emerald tone, and the first sip revealed medium body with initially rich and tad bitter vegetal note of squash and finished off with toasted chestnut. Lingering aftertaste is very savoury. Second infusion was fuller and richer in taste, and vegetal note was especially prominent. After a few sips I got a certain ‘umami’ feel to this tea. Most pleasant. Third infusion was particularly sweet and nutty, it’s amazing how the taste evolves with each steep. Fourth steep showed that the tea was starting to lose its potency but the nutty component was still delivering like in previous three. Fifth steep was a nice epilogue of mild nutty notes paired with prominent minty element. To summarize this tasting note, this is the best Dragon Well I have had so far.
The last of my new Teavivre samples to try! Once again, thank you so much Teavivre! The dry leaves look like the flat and long Dragonwell leaves, of course. Another strong scented leaf. I don't think Teavivre could package their teas better. They leave the samples nice and pillowy so the tea doesn't get crushed. I don't think the air would affect the teas too much if you will be sampling them soon anyway. And then when you order, you get a handy reusable pouch around other packaging the teas are in. So nice. Steep #1 // 37 minutes after boiling // 2 min Another three tablespoon of leaves suggestion from Teavivre, but I'd rather go with two and a half teaspoons (half a sample) to avoid the astringency. I accidentally waited too long for the water to cool, but I was going for a half hour anyway. As to be expected, the flavor is light. But it is such a nice flavor. Sweet, creamy, fresh, nutty, buttery, a little fruity and that creamed/ breaded corn again. I guess all green teas taste like that. I thought it was just mao feng. I'm not sure if I could tell how much of a difference there is between this one and the She Qian. Steep #2 // 30 min after boiling // 2 1/2 min steep Of course the flavor is stronger again, but not at all astringent. So so good. There is a little bit of a mouth drying affect with this cup for some reason though. All of the green teas I've tried from Teavivre recently are similar yet have different characteristics. I've loved most everything I've tried from Teavivre so far, so it is so difficult when deciding what to order.
This is delicious! Thanks *Angel* and *TeaVivre* for the sample! I can't believe how sweet this is. It has a nice vegetal taste that counterbalances the sweetness. And I LOVE that it is organic! So rich and almost creamy. This is a green I could drink every day.
I received this tea as part of Teavivre’s Limited 2014 Spring Green Tea Sampler. The dry leaves have a slightly grassier smell to them then Teavivre’s Premium Grade Dragon Well, and are a little darker green, but still very light. When steeped, the aroma is slightly more subdued. I was quite surprised when upon tasting the tea that the flavor was much punchier though. While Teavivre’s Premium Grade slowly introduces the buttery, sweet, savory taste first through the dry leaves, then through the powerful scent of the steeped tea, and finally through a long taste and aftertaste, this Organic Superfine version hits the tea drinker powerfully all at once, taking them by surprise. The aftertaste is slightly shorter, and interestingly seems to stay in the very center of the tongue rather than extending toward the back sides of the mouth. It has a very, very slight hint of grassiness, but otherwise that element seemed limited to the smell of the dry leaves. It also produces a sort of mouth-watering effect a few minutes after drinking it. The second steeping is slightly grassier, but again, it is very faint. The third steeping sort of unifies the savory flavor of the first with the faint grassiness of the second.
This is the only tea that I drink on a consistent basis. If one was to choose between this and any other green tea then I would choose this every time just because the taste is incredibly unique and sweet. Just enough flavor for tea drinkers and non tea drinkers to enjoy. Pick this tea up if you drink tea with guests!
All I can say is wow. This has to be one of the most interesting teas I have ever tasted. I received sample with my last order and brewed a 17 ounce pot using the western method. The dry leaves had a strong fragrance of vanilla, almost chocolate. A 2 minute infusion yielded a very pale green liquor with a very vegetal, brothy aroma - bordering on (I know this weird) chicken stock. The taste is sweet and slightly astringent and very complex. A very enjoyable, intoxicating cup of tea! Now for the second infusion...
Reply: The word "superfine" is used to describe the grade of the tea and means the quality of this organic green tea is very high.
Reply: Hi, Shi Feng is a original place of dragon well, so Shi Feng Dragon Well is named depends on its original place. And this Organic Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea is not Shi Feng. It is from the Tian'mu Mountain, which locates in a short distance from Shifeng Mountain.
Reply: The brewing guides on the website contain the chinese style guide(Gaiwan) and western style guide(teapot). And the guides on the package is western style guide(teapot). Thank you.
