Tasting Notes:

Dragonwell is the most classic green tea from China, immortalized as a tribute tea by emperors and revered worldwide. The original Dragonwell that was recognized by Emperor Qianlong and propelled the Hangzhou Westlake region to fame is made from an old tree tea cultivar, called Qunti. Ours is a premium grade made from this ancient cultivar. It very distinctly conveys the rocky granite terroir of the pristine region where it is grown on a 500-acre terrace tea garden spanning the lush hillsides of Qiandao Lake, about 100 miles from Hangzhou.

Our partner tea farmer, Mr. Chen, has established his garden with one of his best friends from childhood. His Dragonwell grows alongside native osmanthus trees and relies on predatory bugs and nesting birds for natural pest control. The fresh Spring tea leaves are collected and hand-processed annually in early April. Big on texture and mineral flavor, this is a beautiful example of what a traditional Dragonwell tastes like.

Not as pictured

My tea arrived and it is far from what is pictured. The tea leaves are broken into little pieces (reminiscent of Yerba Mate) and a lot of stems in this 1 pound bag. The flavor is not the greatest either. This isn't my first bag from here. The first bag was great this one doesn't really have a taste very bland.

My Go-to

I only drink green teas and have tried all sorts - genmaicha, clouds and mist, etc. They're all reasonably interesting. But the one I make most often when I just want a cup of deliciousness is this.

I love this green tea

I plan to buy more when I finish the bag of 50 tea bags.


This is a great tea to drink in the morning. It has a good, balanced flavor and is not too strong but not too light. I would definitely purchase it again.


This is my favorite green tea. I love going through tea Spot. They are a great organization and giving back to communities.
