The leaves' yellowish, flattened, shiny appearance gives this famous tea away. Easy to enjoy, Lung Ching (its name in Mandarin) is one of our favorites for a quiet, contemplative moment. We're sure you will agree.
Dragonwell hails from the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, from the West Lake area near the city of Hangzhou. Selections harvested before the spring rains (Qing Ming) are more subtle in flavor and their leaves are smaller, requiring pluckers to pick more bud-sets than for the later variety, of which ours is a member. Leaves tend to have a slight yellow hue, compared to other green teas, such as Mao Feng.
Chinese Green Tea.
Simply add to your infuser one rounded teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve!
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
