This is an authentic Chinese West Lake Dragonwell and considered to be one of the world's finest green teas. Its narrow and flat leaves produce a soothing aroma when brewed. Lung Ching tastes delicate and rich, and has a slight hint of chestnut flavor. The leaves are picked and hand processed in early spring when the mountains are still shrouded in mist. The leaves have a thin, delicate appearance with a golden sheen and give a pale green infusion that's lightly sweet and tremendously fragrant.
