Recommend Brewing Guide:
With a history stretching back over 1,200 years, XiHu Long Jing tea (literally Dragon Well tea from West Lake) is perhaps the most delicious, and definitely most renowned, green tea produced in China. It was famously presented to Richard Nixon when he visited China in the 60's. Apart from an amazing sweet taste, with no bitterness that sometimes characterises other green teas, XiHu Long Jing's significant difference to other green teas is its smooth flat appearance when dry. TeaVivre have selected a great example of XiHu Long Jing, that has a very pale yellow-green color, long-lasting sweet flavour and great orchid aroma. Whenever you feel upset or restless, Long Jing is the perfect drink to relax and calm you.
Unlike using silk, gauze and nylon as tea bag materials, our tea bags are made from a kind of biodegradable fiber (extracted from plant starch mostly from corn and wheat ), which is biodegradable and so environment–friendly. The tetrahedral tea bags have good efficiency of being soaked through quickly in water. And the voluminous space inside bag allows the leaves inside to expand freely so that the flavor of the tea can be extracted to the last drop. Besides, you also can enjoy the beauty of leaves through the transparent tea bag in your cup. The string attached to it helps you removing the bag from your cup after steeping. Let’s enjoy the authentic Chinese tea any time any where!
TeaVivre's Premium grade Dragon Well Green Tea is from XiHu area, which is famed in China for producing the best Long Jing teas, and is in an area with a mix of mountains, forests, small creeks and quality tea gardens. As the origin of XiHu Long Jing, the tea producers in this area strongly recognise the importance of the ecology to their tea, and work hard to preserve both the local tea culture and natural environment.
And this new kind of green tea was approved by The National Tea Tree Thoroughbred Authorized Committee in 1994. Dragon Well Tea from that kind of tea trees is straight and upright, flat, smooth, emerald green and slightly yellow and has lasting aroma and fresh taste (The fresh leaves of spring tea have 4.1 percent Amino acids and 18.6 percent tea polyphenols). The spring tea sprouts early. It usually sprouts in the middle of March. In the end of March, every leaf has a bud. The buds and leaves are of strong cold and drought resistance.
XiHu Long Jing – West Lake Dragon Well green tea – has a long, distinguished, history of over 1,200 years. During the Ming Dynasty, it became very popular and was listed as one of the top grade teas in China. During the reign of Emperor Shunzhi in the Qing Dynasty his love for the tea meant that it was frequently presented by petitioners as a royal tribute.
After the founding of the PRC, Long Jing tea was divided into three categories - “Lion Peak Long Jing”, “Mei Jia Wu Long Jing” and the premium “XiHu Long Jing” that TeaVivre sell. In 1996 the West Lake village of Hangzhou city was recognized by the government as the hometown of Long Jing tea. In recognition of the value and quality of this tea, and the importance of the environment and culture in it's production, the government introduced special protection for this area to preserve its natural state and unique tea culture.

I have some standard, low price green tea I picked up in Chinatown and this. Needless to say, this one is exceptional; but I mention this because if you're used to generic green teas, you must try this. It's a whole new flavor.

Jong Jing is one of those teas where it is so common yet so hard to find a good quality one without paying an arm and a leg. I didn't have very high expectations but after trying this tea, it is so amazing. It has all the qualities the tea should have, smooth sweet grassy flavor with a hint of honey. I can't even imagine what the highest grade tastes like. One day I will get it.
Great packaging, my tea arrived in perfect condition. Very delicate taste, no bitterness, lovely smell, takes me back to my holiday in China :) Great customer service, the Tea Vivre Team do their job very well, Thank you!
The Dragonwell I used to buy is no longer available. I have been looking for an acceptable substitute. I am happy to say I have found it. Service was good and tea is excellent in aroma and taste
This is my first order and everything has been simply perfect. The tea has been delivered in perfect condition, nice smeel, delicate taste. Thanks.
This tea was really nice. Very smooth and tasty. Reminds me of tea you will find in higher end restaurants in china but without the bitter aftertaste that you often find.
Reply: Thanks for your question. Due to different ways of picking and processing it, not all green teas are alike. There are many different classifications of green tea, depending on which leaves were picked, where they were picked and when they were picked along with how they were processed into the final product that you drink. Our Premium Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea do have the nutty aroma, which is commonly known as fried-bean aroma(炒豆香: chǎo dòu xiāng) in China. No matter where is your Longjing tea produced, a good longjing always to be soft and mellow flavored, never grassy or harsh. Moreover, the higher quality Dragon Well often have a slight floral note in their undertones with very green and smooth overtones. Hope it's helpful.
