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.
This Ming Qian Dragon Well Long Jing tea comes from Tiantai Mountain, located in Tiantai County, Taizhou, Zhejiang Province. The average elevation is above 500 meters, with Cangshan(elevation of 1113.4 meters) at east, Taizhu mountain (elevation of 1019.6 meters) at west, Dalei mountain (elevation of 1144 meters) at west, Huading mountain (elevation of 1098meters) at north.
TeaVivre’s Organic Nonpareil Ming Qian Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea, Organic Tianmu Maofeng and Organic Tianmu Yunwu are all from Hangzhou Bao Jia organic tea garden.
Surrounded by Kwun Tong reservoir (官塘水库), the Baojia organic tea garden where our organic green tea comes from is just located in somewhere in Tianmu Mountains in Lin'an, 800-1000 meters above sea level. At this elevation, superior geographical conditions enable good drainage and moderated sunshine, which are two crucial factors to tea growth.
The average annual rainfall here is about 1, 550 mm. Tian Mu mountains are often covered by cloud and mist, which blocks, to some degree, the direct sun light on tea leaves so that the air humidity and diffuse light can be enhanced. Besides, the soil is high in organic content and has an acidic PH that is suitable for growing tea trees. Therefore, the end teas from this garden are especially tender and pleasant-smelling.
Ms Liao has been in tea industry for more than 10 years. Ms Liao, who always devotes himself to establish model of organic tea industry, owns more than 10 tea gardens, including organic tea gardens over 8,000 ares. Several of her tea gardens get the strict organic certification of USDA, EU, JAS.
In August of 2010, dragon well long jing tea from Ms Liao’s tea garden won the first prize of hot tea class in tea championship of World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, America.
Wu Niu Zao tea bush species is native to the area of Wu Niu town, Yongjia county, Zhejiang province, and it is the earliest spring tea at the Jiangnan tea area, so for this it gets the name “Wū niú zǎo 乌牛早”. This tea tree sprouts very early, and usually the germination period of spring is in late February or early March. It has high density of spring sprouts, fat and green tea buds and rich amino acid which is about 4.2%. It is suitable for making green teas, especially suitable for flat shape teas, among which the “Wu Niu Zao Long Jing” has flat shape, high aroma, mellow and sweet taste and clear tea liquid, which is precious among teas.
Longjing tea has a long history which can be dating back to the Tang Dynasty of China. By the Ming Dynasty, Longjing tea gradually fame spread far and wide. After the founding of New China, the governments actively support the development of Longjing tea. Tea Districts are breeding new improved varieties of Long Jing tea, promoting advanced cultivation and processing technology, leading Longjing tea production so embarked on a path of development.
To be famous and flourish, it is based on the good quality and long history and culture of Longjing tea.

This was the first tea purchase I've made from Teavivre. My experience with both the service and the tea itself have been nothing short of amazing! Service: With the order of this tea, I was also allowed to choose two complimentary tea samples - loved both samples! Mary also notified me shortly after I placed the order that she has upgraded my shipping (for free) so that I would receive and be able to enjoy my tea quicker. Thank you again Mary! Tea: This tea was far superior to the Dragon Well I bought in China with the tourist group. Teavivre's Dragon Well smelled like freshly cut grass, with a floral and sweet nutty tone. I loved the sweet aftertaste that this tea had. Needless to say, I will be ordering from you again (almost exclusively).
This was the first green tea I tried from the 2017 lineup. Another excellent green tea from Teavivre which is a great joy to sip. Very smooth, floral aroma and a lightly sweet taste. It was steeped with around 60 degrees C water which proved perfect. I definitely recommend this tea to be sipped slowly and enjoy all its excellent qualities.
My tea arrived yesterday afternoon and I was looking forward to trying it this morning. I'm sipping it as we speak and I'm in heaven!! It's bringing back wonderful memories of my first experience with Dragon Well tea on a trip to China in 1988. I've been hooked on it ever since but, until now, have not experienced the same smooth, nutty flavor of that first cup in Hangzhou. Thank you Teavivre for this delicious tea!!
I received this tea as a sample from Teavivre and was very impressed. somewhat short, flattened and pressed, olive green leaves. Once steeped produce a distinctively green, nutty cup, without bitterness. It should be noted that I received this as a sample at year’s end, so for a spring tea to have such rich flavor at year’s end, says quite a bit about its quality and staying power. An excellent addition to Teavivre’s Dragonwell lineup!
Wow. This has to be my favorite Dragon Well green tea that I've had the opportunity of trying to date. When you first open the bag, you get to smell the freshest floral, nutty scent of the tea instantly. It is very delicate and is not brewed for long to unleash the sweet nutty and floral characteristics. 10/10 tea. Makes me feel great. This has to be the best Dragon well you can find online in north america right now.
I love this tea! The flavor is heavenly, as is my experience when drinking it. In my mind I see my face mirrored back to me in the gently moving water of the legendary Dragon's Well! In a word, peaceful and tasty.
My review of this tea was mistakenly made under the wrong tea! It's written under the order for nonpareil cha wang tai ping hou Kiu green tea instead of here! Dang!
Great presentation and quality tea
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.
