Called long jing in China, which translates into “dragon's well” in English, this tea gets it's name from a small town near the city Hangzhou in the Zhengjiang province of China.
Green tea leaves are pan-fried in order to halt the oxidation process, which differs from some green teas which are steamed or baked. This tea is high in vitamin C and amino acids and shares all of the same health benefits of the high antioxidant levels found in all green teas.
Dragon's well tea is also used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat food poisoning, fight viruses, prevent cavities, and to control blood pressure and blood sugar levels. The flavor and aroma of this tea are smooth and complex, and will have a long lasting after-taste.
