This Organic Dragon Well Long Jing tea comes from Tianmu 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.
With elevation of 300 m to 1556 m, Tianmu Mountain is well-known for its typical forest ecosystem and landscape of middle subtropical regions.
Dongkeng Organic Tea Garden is located in TianMu, Lin’an, Hangzhou. Been the first village of organic tea in China, it stands out in the pleasant natural ecological environment that is good place to product great teas. Here the elevation is 800 metres to 1000 metres.
Dongkeng Village - the first village of organic tea in China. The first export tea in China is from here
Ms Liao, who has been in organic tea industry for about ten years, introduced the hard experience of exploiting organic tea garden from initial desolation forest here. After several years’ exploiting and development, the nice organic tea garden appears, as well as getting the USDA, EU, JAS organic certification to ensure the healthy quality of the tea.
The fresh tea leaves are from tea trees of Jiukeng species, also called Jiukeng big-leaf specie, seeding family, bush, mainly distributes in Chun’an, Kaihua in Zhejiang Province and Shexian in Anhui Province. In 1950th, it was introduced to tea areas all around Zhejiang. In 1985 it was verified as a national specie with number GS13023-1985 by the National Crop Variety Certification Committee. The dry leaves of spring tea from this species contains about 3.4% of amino acid, 20.9% of tea polyphenols, 13.3% of catechin and 4.1% of caffeine, which is good for making green tea.
To be famous and flourish, it is based on the good quality and long history and culture of Longjing tea.

This is some of the best, possibly the best Dragon Well tea we have tasted. Mellow, nutty, sweet (but not too sweet), all while having a pronounced clarity to the taste. Really it is perfect.
Toasty chestnut aroma, mellow and sweet taste, love it :)
An excellent sample,very close to Premium Dragon Well
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.
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.
