Dragon Well (Long Jing) is the most famous green tea from China, named after the famous Dragon Well landmark in the West Lake area of the Zhejiang, where the tea was first made. Dragon Well tea leaves are flat, bright green and shiny. It produces a decoction that is clear with a bright green color. The taste is light and fragrant.
Flavor: Sweet impressions of budding spring vegetals with a light and ephemeral roasted note that finishes crisp and clean
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
