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”.

All right, first sample from the new batch from Teavivre. Thanks again, Angel!
This is also my first Dragonwell, so I’m a bit excited to finally get to try it out. I put about four grams of tea in my tea ball. The instructions said to use more, but that was also to make 8 oz. of tea, whereas my mug only holds 6. Anyway, I steeped the leaves for one minute in 175 degree water, and the results were great. It has a very smooth texture, like the aftertaste of a Wuyi Oolong, which seems to coat the tongue and hard palate. The tea also has a delightfully nutty flavor which reminds me a bit of Hojicha, but it’s not as strong and taste more refined. Definitely a great way to start off the weekend.
Alright, second infusion, same preparation as before. The only real difference is that it has lost a bit of the mineral smoothness, which, while disappointing, does not really affect the taste too much. It is, however, a bit unfortunate, because it seems that I won’t get all that many infusions out of this tea.

Considering its price; that it's organic; and that its taste is great, I give this tea 5 stars.
This tea has a nice citrus aspect to it that I associate with good long jing.
Teavivre proves once again that you cannot go wrong when purchasing their teas. This Organic longjing is perfect. I couldn't ask for a better tea.
I received this as one of my samples and compared it to the cheaper dragonwell offered here. This one is far superior! Small leaves and a very nice, delicate taste! Definitely worth the increase in price from the cheaper alternative.
This is by far the best Long Jing I have had. I am still blown away every time I make this. For additional steeps I sometimes add a very small amount of fresh tea and can easily steep 4 times this way.
I asked for a sample of this in my last order and I'm very glad I did. Compared to the Premium grade, the taste is broader and more refined. It's not quite as toasty as the Premium grade, but I think I will be ordering the Superfine from now on. Very, very good.
I grew up with drinking green tea so I love your tea.
I wanted to add another comment, this tea can get 2-4 steeps if you use enough tea. It is also beautiful to watch the leaves 'jumping' around in a glass cup.
I was very happy to find an organic Dragon Well here on TeaVivre and this one does not disappoint. Although not quite as bold or toasty as the Premium grade Dragon Well, it's a lovely leaf with lively taste, smooth and sprightly enough to be a one and only. If you want an organic green this is a fine one.
This tea is absolutely exquisite! I have nothing but praise for the quality of teavivre's tea. It has a grassy major note, but is underpinned by a nutty complexity and a very very light astringency that leaves the palate feeling great.
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.
