Ingredients: High Altitude Grown Dragonwell (Long Jing) Green Tea
The phrase ‘crouching tiger, hidden dragon’ is a Chinese idiom, typically comprised of four characters and refers to a larger tale with a lesson at the end. It derives from an ancient Chinese poem which compels one to search for the extraordinary behind the ordinary. The traditional name of ‘Dragonwell tea’ is inspired by the legend of a powerful dragon who hid for centuries in an ordinary, forgotten well.
This tea is grown at 3,280 feet above sea level on the terraced plantations along the hills that surround Qiandao (Thousand Island) Lake. The scent of gentle umami enlightens the key structure of the body until notes of green artichoke and soft cream pass through the palate to finish the sip with the lingering fragrance of waterlily.
This tea comes in a reusable canister containing 50g of Loose Leaf Dragonwell Green Tea.
