One of China's Top Ten Famous Teas from China's Westlake region of Zhejiang province. The Dragon Well steeps a jade color and has a vegetative aroma and mellow chestnut-like flavor.
To develop this unique flavor, the tea leaves are skillfully pan fired. The tea makers work with small batches and press the leaves flat against the side of a wok as they stir the leaves to control the heat. The finished product is flat, blade-shaped leaves.
