China's most renowned green tea takes its name from a nearby natural spring once said to be inhabited by dragons. No one knows whether the dragons came for the water... or for the exquisite tea.

  • Ingredients
  • 2 heaping tsp per 8 oz of water, 175°F, 3 min

    • Each pound of Dragon Well consists of 30,000 to 40,000 hand-plucked tea leaf shoots
    • The vegetative aroma of this jade liquid gives way to a mellow flavor of roasted chestnuts intertwining with notes of seaweed, green bean, and arugula
    • The Cultured Cup Tasting Panel finds that using a little less time and lower temperature (around 2:30 at 170 degrees), you can coax out the floral and fruity nuances of this tea, while restraining its astringency
    • The Tasting Panel loves this tea's balance between buttery sweet greens and stony minerality--with just enough astringency to wake up the taste buds. Though the flavor of Dragonwell is always centrally vegetal, the highlights of this tea are its secondary layers: chestnut, currant, floral notes, and stone.
    • Zheijiang Province, where Dragon Well tea is grown, sits on the coast of the East China Sea, north of Fujian province and south of Shanghai
    • Try pairing this tea with aged Gruyere cheese. The mild astringency of the tea contrasts beautifully with the richness of the cheese
    • Gruyere, gouda or Havarti cheese
    • Steamed green beans with almonds
    • Asparagus, artichokes, bok choi or edamame
    • Fresh fish with slivered almonds
    • Cream-based desserts
  • China green tea: 100%

  • Bi Luo Chun, Green Needle
