This April 10 harvest is sweet, nutty, and fresh, with a clean mineral finish and a softly sparkling texture. The aftertaste lingers with a soft aroma and a sweet flavor. An elegant and complex Dragonwell. Naturally grown Dragonwell is hard to find in the traditional growing region of Hangzhou, Zhejiang. This is why we have connected with the community of Chayuen that are producing traditional style Dragonwell with the traditional cultivars in a very natural and biodiverse environment.

Recommended Brewing Instructions:

Standard Style: Use 2tsp (~3g) per 250ml cup. Brew for 2 minutes.

- 175F for a sweeter, lighter profile with more chestnut notes.

- 185F for a more buttery, vegetal profile.

This tea can be rebrewed up to 4 times, with hotter water and longer infusions.


Dragonwell Style: Cover the bottom of a heat-resistant glass cup or tumblr with leaves, then pour 185F water enough to cover the leaves. Enjoy the aroma of the tea.

Then, fill the rest of the glass with the water, and let steep until the leaves have unfurled and are sinking to the bottom of the glass.

Enjoy the tea and keep refilling the glass with hot water as necessary.
