Dragon Well Tea of the West Lake

Last updated by gunnar at 2017/4/24

The Dragon Well Tea (Longjing Tea) of the West Lake has a history of more than 1200 years. The traditional Dragon Well Tea has divided into the varieties lion, dragon, cloud, and tiger. The Dragon Well Tea is made by picking tender tea leaves and stir-frying them. The picking time is very important and the tea leaves picked before the Qingming Festival (in April) are called "Mingqian" while those before the Grain Rain are called "Yuqian". Both the Mingqian tea and the Yuqian tea are top grade, while leaves picked after them are ordinary tea leaves. The Dragon Well Tea has what is usually called the "four wonders", namely, green color, thick fragrance, thick flavor and beautiful shape.
