Definition of Ming Qian (pre-ming)
Qing Ming Day, the traditional Tomb-Sweeping Day is one of twenty four solar terms in Chinese lunar calendar, which is between 4th and 6th, April. Ming Qian means pre-ming, that is before April 4. The tea picked before Qing Ming Day are tender and precious. The temperature between Vernal Equinox Day and Qing Ming Day is low that cause the slow growing of tea buds sprout, result in limited amount of tea of that high quality. Therefore, tea lovers are very much fond of the high-grade Ming Qian Tea.
Organic quality, delightful shape, delicate and sweet taste, sip of spring in this Ming Qian Long Jing Tea.

Great presentation and quality tea
Shape is incredible - so nice and tiny tea leaves. First brew just blows your mind: very intensive nutty aroma, just sweetness no signs of astringency. Second and third brews slightly disappoints : amazing aroma still here, but taste is quite blank.
Incredible. This tea is not to be missed, it has a light to medium roast that provides a very smooth and roasty nuttiness. In addition, there is a floral and sweet dimension not usually found in Dragonwell - this is an influence of terroir. A good, clean growing environment will produce teas which are both vivid and delicate in taste. This tea has complex layers of flavor throughout the brews, even as the tea cools in the cup the flavor develops! And I love the aftertaste. It is very refreshing and clean. This tea is organic, which I think is important. The clean environment can be felt in the taste of the tea.
Before sprain Longjing tea always taste the best.
Несравненный Лунцзин, у него удивительно яркий цветочный аромат, гармоничный вкус, нежное и чуть сладковатое послевкусие.
Very fond of green tea. And this so much I liked it. subtle and refined taste. I advise everyone to try it!
Легкий аромат и неповторимый вкус! Всё очень понравилось! Спасибо!
This is the best green tea I have ever had! It's has the freshest little green tea buds ! When you steep it the open into little tiny green leaves , some still closed , they are so tender. I get excited to brew this tea everytime !
I wrote a very strong review for Teavivre's 2014 She Qian Dragonwell, which I consider to be one of the best Dragonwell's that I've had. I was thrilled with the She Qian, but decided to order the Ming Qian as well, in order to a try another harvest and have more of an "everyday" kind of Dragonwell. I wasn't surprised that the Ming Qian was also excellent. With gongfu brewing, it brewed a very similar fresh cup of green tea as the She Qian; with glass tumbler brewing, it went for numerous infusions before losing it's flavor. While I'll admit that the Ming Qian lacked that powerful dry-leaf aroma and depth of character in gongfu brewing in comparison to the She Qian, it's worth noting that it's 2/3 the price of She Qian! This tea is a superb example of what Dragonwell tea has to offer. I'm curious to try Teavivre's Superfine grade of Dragonwell. I imagine it's a great value as well.
I've always been a fan of dragonwell tea and this one doesn't disappoint! It's very light and delicate as far as dragonwell teas go. If you prefer your tea strong, I would recommend the organic superfine dragonwell and not this one. The other brews stronger if you like strong green tea. This one is still really good though!
Reply: Hi Chandra, Thank you for your question. Ming Qian Dragon Well contains a relatively lower level of caffeine. And you may read some information in our article: http://www.teavivre.com/info/caffeine-in-tea/ However, everyone has different react to caffeine. Since you have to limit to zero caffeine, I'd like to suggest not to drink tea. Maybe you can try some herbal tea which is caffeine-free. And weight loss is a long process, tea can help with digestion. And you still need to exercise, and pay attention to the daily meal. Hope this is helpful to your concern.
Reply: No, it is not. This tea is from Tianmu Mountain in Lin’an County, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, which is close to Shifeng Mouintain.
