Tian Mu Mountain
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. Dragon well long jing tea can refresh minds, brace spirit, help you think, remove fatigue, improve your work efficiency. Dragon well long jing tea has fluorine, which helps protect your teeth from acid corrosion and decay by bonding with calcium in teeth.
Good environment can provide good tea. Our dragon well long jing tea comes from Tianmu Mountain (Eyes on Heaven Mountain), located in Lin’an, northwest in Zhejiang Province, a distance of 84 kilometers away from Hangzhou. Tianmu in Chinese means the eyes on heaven. There is a pool on each top of east peak (elevation of 1480 meters) and west peak (elevation of 1506 meters) of Tianmu Mountain. The two pools look like the eyes that are watching the sky. This is how it was named.

Tea trees sparsely grown in Mount Tiantai organic garden, at a height of 500m above sea level, are vulnerable to strong winds raved through the forest sometimes. So, around the tea garden stand by some taller trees such as pines and firs with exuberant foliage. Those trees planted by tea farmers form a natural defense to hold back the strong wind.
Organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Tips: it holds a strict standard of building an organic tea garden. For example, the land which is planned to apply a qualification of organic tea garden should never use any pesticides in the past 5 to 10 years. In the range of 10 kilometers from the tea garden no factories should exist.
The fresh tea leaves are from tea trees of Jiukeng specie, also called Jiukeng big-leaf specie, seeding family, bush, mainly distribute in Chun’an, Kaihua in Zhejiang Province and Shexian in Anhui Province. In 1985 it was verified as national specie of number GS13023-1985 by the National Crop Variety Certification Committee. The spring tea has one bud and two leaves, and contains about 3.4% of amino acid, 20.9% of tea polyphenols, 13.3% of catechin and 4.1% of caffeine, which is suitable for making green tea. The dry tea is green bloom, with strong aroma and heavy flavor. In order to guarantee the high quality of fresh tea leaves, it is strictly requested since the picking process: when picking the leaves, your hands must start from the side of leaves, carefully and gently pick off the leaf, then put it into the basket immediately. There is a saying that if the leaf stay on your hand for couples of seconds, the heat from your hands will make the leaf turn into red color.
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”.

It's hard to value this tea, because this is not a very special longjing , but quite good ordinary longjing tea. In my opinion multiple infusions should be 1° 60s , 2° 60s and 3° 60/70s or a single infusion 3/4 minutes. the taste is a little bit vegetal and the parfume remembers a chestnuts.
Очень вкусный чай! Покупала такой. Сколько здесь покупаю - все нравится и красиво упаковано.
This is my #1 green tea, partly because it is organic, and partly because of the drinking experience. The aroma and taste are delightful every time, always sweet and fresh. I steep up to three times, sometimes adding a few fresh leaves to the pot.
I rarely ever write reviews on products. However this is a wonderful tea. I had purchased three Dragonwell teas prior to trying this one. The other teas I purchased were bitter. When I received my package for this tea and opened it up the fragrance was so fresh; that is the only way I can describe it. Great package and made it in super condition to Colorado USA. I truly love this tea and will be ordering more in the future plus trying some other green teas. Thank you!
This tea is clean and smooth with sweet, toasty notes. It does not taste as nutty as other Dragonwells, instead it is more green and tastes fresh. The aroma of the wet leaves is very enticing, especially after the first steep. There is a depth to this tea that is very pleasing. This tea certainly can compete with the best XiHu Longjing. You could not tell the difference side by side between them! I love that this tea is organic.
This is the last of the Teavivre Spring 2014 green teas I’ve left to try. I left the two Dragonwells until last on purpose so that I could drink them together and maybe compare a little. In terms of appearance, this one is very similar to the Premium Dragonwell. The leaves are large (about 2-4cm), folded and flat. They’re mostly a medium grass green, although with some lighter and a few darker leaves. These leaves are more mottled than the Premium leaves, I think. There are more yellow and brown patches, on more of the leaves – perhaps because they’re organic? I’m not certain on that count! I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 2.5 minutes in water cooled to around 175 degrees. Brewed, the leaves are mostly unchanged, and have not unfolded at all. The scent is quite pungent, but very fresh – green vegetables (maybe cabbage or asparagus). The brewed liquor is a light yellow-green. The taste isn’t as strong as I thought it would be, based on the scent of the brewed liquor. I can taste asparagus, and a touch of something cabbage-like that just verges on bitterness. It’s a very smooth tea, although I wouldn’t quite describe it as buttery. The hint of bitterness at the end of the sip is interesting, in that it provides a bit of bite. I guess that’s why I don’t find it as smooth as the Premium, but it’s still pleasant nonetheless. On balance, this isn’t my favourite Dragonwell of those I’ve tried so far. It’s interesting in terms of flavour, and I’m pleased all over again that I don’t dislike it, but I think the buttery sweetness of the Premium Dragonwell probably spoilt me for this one today. I have some leaves left, so I’ll return to this one another day. For now, though, I’m impressed with the quality of the green teas I’ve tried from Teavivre, and I’m looking forward to the arrival of the Spring 2015 sampler.

Simply delicious. 2015 is not as roasty as last years Superfine Longjing. This one is more fresh and consentrates on teas own sweet and delicate flavour with nice nutty and roasty aftertaste. If you don't like roasty lonjings now is your chance. Really creamy and light vegetal flavour with plenty of sweetness. Leaves are also really beautiful. They are big, flat and with sharp tips. Colour is vibrant green. 5 stars all the way.
A delicious tea..I got this as an upgrade from another one of the dragonwell's and I am beyond spoiled. A light vegetal buttery creamy taste, it just has such a delicate wonderful taste. I can see myself buying this again.
My favorite 'go to' tea any time of day. Naturally sweet, rich full taste, delightful golden color. Steeps well 2-3 times.
I received this tea as a free sample along with other teaware. The tea arrived in good condition -- no broken leaves! It has a slight smokey flavor which reminds me of hojicha, but not as strong. It has an undertone of what I describe as a sort of buttered-popcorn type of flavor. Every now and again, a sweet grassy flavor will surface, which is quite delightful. There are more hard to describe and hidden flavors, which only add to the complexity and deliciousness of this tea. This is possibly my favorite dragonwell tea now, and I am planning on ordering more.
Reply: Dear James, Thank you very much for writing to us. The shelf life of this tea is 18 months. So it is safe for the customer to drink this tea. Hope this is helpful for you.
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.
