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
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.
This is the first day in over a week I am not frantically running everywhere. I have been very lazy. Finally got around to breakfast and morning tea – at noon – A bowl of rice and a warm mug of this. I think I personally prefer the more boisterous premium version but this is exquisitely smooth. The liquor is so clear and sparkly yellow. The nose is buttery veggies. The late sip and after taste have just a light bite and the flavor really lingers long after the sip is gone. A really tranquil tea for my much needed lazy day.

Strong distinctive aroma and taste. No bitterness. Good aftertaste. If you like the taste this is a high grade tea at a good price.
This is such a mellow and at the same time full body Long Jing! I ordered 50g of Superfine Organic Long Jing , and 100 of the non organic one . Both taste great after 3 steeps. What makes this tea superior is it delicate, distinguished taste: it is SUPER FINE, as the name says:-)
Thank to Teavivre for this very generous sample! I feel crummy today and I still have almost 2hrs. before I have to start my homework so I thought I’d relax with some nice, pure tea. I’ve been in quite the flavored tea stint so all this plain tea tasting has brought me back to what I really love to enjoy. Dry, this tea smells almost similar to a Bai Mu Dan; especially the light hay notes. There is also an almost nutty smell coming through. I’m not sure how much to add to my tiny cup, so I’m just eyeballing it as covering the bottom. I’ve only had one other Dragon Well and to be honest, I hated it. It smelled and tasted swampy. Wow! Even though I only steeped this for 2min. the smell is very strong. There are lots of pea notes in the front of this brew. It is very crisp and I’m really loving the nutty notes. This particular steep is reminding me a lot of sencha. There is almost a milky-ness to this tea, as I saw other reviews state. Compared to my last run in with Dragon Well this is amazing! This is easily one of my favorite greens and I would really recommend it for anyone new to green teas. This review was originally published on Steepster by Tamm on December, 2012.

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.
