Organic Dragon Well
$25.00 – $203.00
The Lung Ching or “Dragon Well” with its subtle, chestnut flavor is probably the most renowned green tea in the world. Its mellow, slightly sweet taste makes it very enjoyable, even for the green tea novice. The leaves are dried in a hot wok. Skillful hands press the leaves against the sides of the wok and turn them repeatedly until they obtain their characteristically flat shape. This basic Lung Ching from the Chinese Zehjiang Province is an excellent value. Entirely handmade, it has the fresh aroma and beautiful jade-green color usually found in significantly more expensive grades.
Enjoy this vitamin C-rich tea throughout the day or as an evening revitalizer. Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh, cold water until slow steam rises (160° F); let steep for 2 min.
2oz makes 20-25 cups of tea.
Health Benefits: In traditional Chinese and Indian medicine, practitioners have used green tea as a stimulant, diuretic, digestion aid and astringent. Studies show that green tea has the ability to regulate blood glucose, density and lower risk heart disease. It is a rich source of the polyphenol EGCG, shown to provide protection against cancer, particularly colon, lung and skin cancers.
