Green Tea Health Benefit
Every tea is made from same plant, Camellia Sinensis. How it is processed is the difference among black tea, green tea or other teas. Green tea contains several polyphenolic compounds that give tea its characteristic taste, flavour and colour. The most significant polyphenols present in green tea are Catechins, which are very beneficial antioxidants.
Dragon Well is considered to be one of the most famous of green teas in China. Five main characteristics that make Dragon Well stand out from the rest of the green teas are its jade green color, orchid-like smell, blade-shaped leaves, fresh taste and semi-sweet aftertaste. These unique traits make Dragon Well an all-time favorite and a very attractive choice for any tea-drinker.
Dragon Well is also known as Long-Gin or Lung Ching in Chinese. It was mentioned by Lu Yu (733-804 A.D.) in his famous “The Classic of Tea”. It is a green tea that is very popular in China and considered one of their most famous. Although Dragon Well may be grown all over China, Dragon Well originates from the mountains surrounding the beautiful West Lake of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, China. DragonWell also has a historical significance in American History as it was the tea presented to President Richard Nixon during his trip to China.

Let the water come to a boil and then let it cool for five minute before pouring over the tea, using about a teaspoon of tea per 8 oz. cup. Let it steep for about three to five minutes and drink, or remove the leaves (if using an infuser). The tea can be used for a second brewing.
