Lung Ching Tea, also known as Dragonwell, is produced by hand through a 10 part process. The tea used to produce Dragonwell is grown by the side of West Lake in Zhejiang Province. Dragon Well is distinguished by its beautiful shape, emerald color, scented smell and tending sweet floral character. In Chinese culture Dragon Well is looked upon as an excellent gift to give to your friends as once it was a gift to emperors.

In ancient times, top Dragonwell tea was the tea of emperors and special dignitaries. The secret was in the plucking! Known as imperial plucking only the bud and the first leaf was plucked and this had to occur before the Clear Light Festival, otherwise the tea could not be have the moniker "Imperial." Young virgins, gloved and using gold scissors delicately plucked the stem and placed it into a golden basket. The tea was only plucked once a year during March and early April before the Clear Light Festival. Today the plucking process has changed somewhat (the time of plucking has not changed) but it is fascinating to know the tradition behind this marvelous tea.

As with all great teas there is more than one legend. Another tale has it that in 250 AD, a Taoist monk affirmed that there must be a dragon lurking in a certain spring not far from Hangchow. The monk implored the well dragon to come to the rescue of the poor farmers suffering a crippling drought. Instantly the clouds came rushing in from every side and poured forth a timely rain. On account of this, an old temple adjoining the spring is know as Dragon's Well Monastery, and the tea derives its name from the same legend.

Lung Ching Tea, also known as Dragonwell, is produced by hand through a 10 part process. The tea used to produce Dragon Well is grown by the side of West Lake in Zhejiang Province. Dragon Well is distinguished by its beautiful shape, emerald color, scented smell and tending sweet floral character.

In the People's Republic of China, mist and fog often compensate of insufficient rainfall, at the same time cloaking the gardens in secrecy. Here tea is produced according to ancient time-tested methods and workers perform all tasks by hand, just like their ancestors. The tea leaves that become Dragonwell (a.k.a. Lung Ching) are plucked before the Clear Light Festival or at the least before the spring rains have fallen. The choicest come from a part of the mountain called Lion's Peak where plucking takes place before each tender shoot has more than one leaf.

Legend has it that in 250 AD, a Taoist monk affirmed that there must be a dragon lurking in a certain spring not far from Hangchow. The monk implored the well dragon to come to the rescue of the poor farmers suffering a crippling drought. Instantly the clouds came rushing in from every side and poured forth a timely rain.
