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.

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”.

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.
This was my first encounter with Dragonwell. The dry leaves are very uniform and visually pleasing. The tea itself tastes nutty and vegetal. It's very smooth with no bitterness. Even though I'm not a fan of this particular flavor profile, I still found it very enjoyable. I don't think it's possible to dislike this tea.
My all time favourite! Very smooth and pure green tea, with a scent of sunflower seeds and oils. Smells amazing. Be sure not to brew it with very hot water, 70-75c is perfect. The dry leaves taste interesting too. Better if you use special glass tea ware for brewing.
This is my first organic tea & I am unsure of how I feel about it. It's not bad but it isn't a favorite of mine. Something different to be sure. Possibly it is the aroma I have a problem with. The quality is good however.
A very good quality Dragon Well. Well worth the price. I love the look of unsteeped dragon well leaves however when I order from many online companies, a lot of the time, it comes a bit damaged. Teavivre packed it sturdily. It tastes fresh with strong unami flavors. Extremely creamy and a bit floral. I got through the sample size very quickly and am now considering on making a full order.
I love Long Jing and have tried more than I can count. I have to say this Long Jing is up there with the best of them and especially how reasonably priced it is. The aroma and smell was just fantastic! I will coming back for more. I would like to add the teas arrived in perfect condition not a single broken leaf in my order! Well done!
This is the first tea I ever got from Teavivre, and I am impressed. Living in Colorado USA doesn't leave many options for good tea. You can buy good tea and pay a lot more for it, yet this blows it out of the water. The aroma and smell indicates the great care they take to keep the tea fresh.
Teavivre tea are also best! 티비브로 차들이 최고! 다른 곳위 차들도 구매해봤지만 여기만한 데가 없네요.
The aroma of dry tea leaves is really fresh and sweet, leaves are not crumbled and are still whole which is really nice, their color is light green with yellowness. I have another bag of Longjing tea that I bought from local shop but it doesn’t get even near this, this smells like TEA not just tea. Also organic quality gets a plus. 1st steep: The color of 2min steep is clear light yellow and it doesn’t smell as strong as the leaves it still smells really fresh and slightly nutty. Maybe there is bit of creaminess too. Taste is a bit mild, but soft (I think it my fault, too few leaves or too short steeping time). It’s sweet, creamy, flowery with hint on vegetables. This isn’t that toasty than my another Longjing which is lower quality. 2nd steep: I used 3,5mins for this infusion and see if it would modify the flavor. Yup, the flavor is bit stronger it tastes still as delicious as before, a bit richer maybe. I will steep it one more time after this. Thank you Teavivre for this sample! I would definitely buy whole bag of this if I wouldn’t be a poor student.
Brewed Dragonwell style. I could never tire of a good Dragonwell. This is one in which you can’t stop sticking your nose into the packet to savor the aroma of the dry leaf, which smells of ocean and seaweed and fresh vegetables. The liquor is crisp, somewhat thick, and full-bodied, with sweet vegetal notes. Aftertaste is nutty, mostly almonds. Also, the leaf has a lovely color – fresh, bright green, green olive hues – and steeps beautifully in a glass tumbler.

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.
