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
A strong but nice grassy aroma emerged from the sample packet when I opened it. The unbrewed green tea leaves were long, bright, and flat. I steeped this tea for two minutes at 175 degrees (one degree lower than the recommended 176 degrees due to tea maker limitations). The brewed color was a fairly vibrant golden green. The odor was grassy and sweet. As you may have seen me write ad nauseam, I am not a green tea banner waver. However, I’ve got to say, I REALLY like the taste of this one! The flavor is fresh, sweet, and grassy, like a newly mowed Spring meadow. Absolutely no bitterness is present. The aftertaste lingers delicately on your palate. It’s hard for me to rank green teas since I tend to dismiss them after tasting them. But, if forced to do so, this selection would definitely be near the top of my list! This review was originally published on Steepster by Stoo in Feb, 2013. TeaVivre add this whole review here by getting permission from Stoo.
REALLY SWEET! fresh scent & light strong taste :D but I found some weird leaf...It just little but you should check before brewing
I got this as part of the Teavivre's Green Tea sample pack. I’ve never had a Dragon Well Long Jin tea before and I was quite curious about the reputed chestnut flavors. Dry the tea is intriguing, straight and long the leaves almost reminded me (visually) of oversized Fur needles. The scent was fresh but yet warm, much warmer than I was expecting. And there were definite nutty notes, including the chestnut that I was hearing about in other reviews. After a quick rinse I steeped this for 20 seconds; the resulting liquor was a light yellow-green color and had a very fresh scent to it with a number of savory undertones. The flavor profile was filled with chestnuts and butter with just a few darker vegetal flavors. The chestnut lingered on the tongue and while the mouthfeel was quite rich I got a mildly astringent feeling as part of the finish. The liquor from my second steeping (40 sec) was the same color and warm, fresh scent as the first one. Flavor wise I got a few more buttery notes mixed in with the chestnuts, it was almost like drinking a chestnut pastry filling without all the sweetness (granted the tea was quite sweet on its own, but you know how much sugar is in those fillings!) The mouthfeel was a bit heavier this time around and the chestnut flavor lingered longer. My next steeping was for a full minute and the scent profile for the pale butter yellow liquor was mellowing out a bit, still warm and nutty but just not as fragrant as it was before. Similarly the flavor profile has shifted a bit as well, warm the vegetal flavors were now showing up more and the chestnut was just a bit softer than previous steepings. This infusion also was a bit bitter while still having that touch of astringency on the finish. I found the last steeping (2 min) almost too bitter and astringent for my tastes. The yellow liquor had a mellow fresh scent but I just wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as the previous steepings. I’m going to have to try this one again at a later date… Personally I’m not sure about the chestnut flavor (I’m not a huge chestnut fan but I enjoy it in some things) and how it mixes with the dark vegetal notes. I could see it growing on me though and at the very least though it might not end up being a regular tea for me I could see reaching for it when I’m looking for something different.
Crisp, sweet and nutty with a hint of buttery spinach. No bitterness. Delicious, and a pleasure to drink even when cool. A definite favorite!
Every time I order this tea I am reminded how wonderful it is. Extremely fresh and fragrant. By far best green tea I've encountered. I drink a lot of tea so I'm partial to the Organic tea's.
I've been going through the organic green sampler pack, and this was the first I tried. It's a very good tea. I'm brewing about a teaspoon for a twelve ounce mug, maybe 170F and for two minutes. The first brew is rich and hearty and has some interesting flavors I'd normally associates with a black tea. The second tastes a little more plain. The third steep is a bit weak, and it brings out more of a citrus and slightly bitter flavor. From the feel of it the caffeine level is in the low~medium range. I've been debating whether I should order more; it's a bit more expensive than I'd usually like for a daily drink. Considering it's been my main choice this last week I may need to get another batch.
Much better than other, more expensive, dragon wells I've tried in the past. I preferred it at a cooler water temp.
A wonderful green tea! It was light and refreshing with a sweet, lingering aftertaste. I will happily recommend this tea to green tea lovers,
i didn't like it at first. sorry, just my opinion. Then i started playing around with my brewing and i liked it. It wasn't easy to make right away. it was very sweet and green, every cup was different. i noticed after steeping that some leaves are a bit yellow on the ends. it's good, not excellent but good.
I bought this tea as a gift for my friend who is a green tea expert and got a sample for myself. The leaves are straight and have a beautiful color but I was concerned as they smelled a bit grassy. The tea was a pleasant surprise! Beautiful color, does not taste grassy at all, no bitterness, the taste lasts long. I managed to resteep it three times and still get full flavor. The tea was a success with my friend and has become one of my kids favorite green tea. We will purchase this tea in a future order.
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.
