From the Well of the Dragon 龍井

13 12 2010

When I am in town, I brew cha at least once every day at the office. Our most usual morning cha is Longjing, Dragonwell, from the gardens of Tea Master Jason C.S. Chen, owner of C.C. Fine Tea. Authentic and traditional Longjing comes from Zhejiang province, China. There is well there with the very finest spring water and the well is said to be inhabited by a dragon.

C.C. Fine Tea’s Longjing is made up completely of buds and has 45,000 buds per pound. Picked early in the Spring, this cha brews to a lovely pale green color with a lingering sweetness on the palate.
