Dragon well is characterized by its unusual shape and characteristics of the dry leaves--long, flat, and very light weight.
Lung ching is available in many different grades with widely variable prices. Some of the higher-quality dragon well teas are considered highly desirable and can be very expensive.
A Yunnan green tea which is also called Bao Hong Tea (宝洪茶), is called Yi Liang Long Jing (宜良龙井), meaning Yi Liang Dragon Well. This tea does resemble the traditinoal dragon well in processing and appearance, but less in taste.
