Dragon Well (Long Jing) Loose Leaf Green Tea

Dragon Well (aka. Long Jing) green tea is certainly one of the most famous Chinese green teas with its unique, distinctive flat, jade-green leaf appearance. Traditionally made, authentic Long Jing green tea should offer a distinctive, sweet nutty flavours reminiscent of grilled chestnut. 

This Dragon Well, hailing from eastern Zheijiang Province, is made from more mature tea leaves harvested after the Qing Ming period. However, as pre-Qing Ming Long Jing from West Lake and Meijiwau village in Hangzhou demands an exorbitant price tag, we wanted to introduce a more affordable Long Jing which still exhibits its classic, nutty, toasty flavour. When we tasted the sample of this Long Jing - voilà, we were convinced that this Long Jing is what we were looking for! A delightfully rounded, velvety liquor with its unmistakable roasted chestnut and hazelnut flavours and a lingering sweet finish.

A quintessential example of how classic Dragon Well green tea should taste.  

As a natural source of antioxidant such as Catechin and Vitamin C, our Dragon Well green tea will not only satisfy your palate, but will also help nourish your body and mind as well.

Tea Region: Xin Chang, Zhejiang Province, China

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Translucent, pale, golden liquor.
  • Aroma: Nutty (grilled chestnut), umami and toasted aromas.
  • Flavour:  Pronounced nutty flavour (hazelnuts, chestnuts) with a sweet and long lasting finish.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
