One of the best and most famous teas from China, handpicked
and hand-processed, mild and clear in flavor, hardly bitterness. Perfect entry-level tea for "Green tea entrants".
The unique leaves of the Lung Ching are flat, emerald-green, smooth and elongated. This results from the processing. The tea, hand-harvested on the steep slopes of Hangzhou City in Zhejiang Province, is heated in cast-iron pans to prevent oxidation. The sheet is turned by hand for about 15 minutes. Only then is the tea rolled, dried and rolled flat.
The result of this elaborate process tastes lovely, fresh, aromatic and has a sweetish note. The tea infusion has an orange color at first and then changes to jade green when pulled.
Dragonbrunnen tea owes its name to a legend. At 250 AD. A dragon lived near the city of Hangzhou. During a long period of drought, a monk asked this dragon for water. The next day it started to rain. As a thank you, the inhabitants renamed their wells to Dragon Wells, and in honor of the Savior, the tea that grows nearby was from that time only called Dragon's Breath Tea.
Preparation: boil 1 liter of water bubbly, let it cool to about 75°C and pour over the tea, leave to infuse for 2 minutes.
