Imperial Dragonwell (Long Jing) from Shanti Tea

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Zhejiang, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 15th, 2010

The liqueur is a deep amber tone. There are a couple of leaves left in the cup. There is a smell of cooked grass, sort of like leeks, and a soft hint of caramel in the smell.

This doesn’t seem to be a super complex set of tones to this tea. That doesn’t make this a bad tea though, it is just a sort of basic tea....

Dragonwell Green Tea from Boston Tea Company

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Zhejiang, China

23 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Oct. 6th, 2010

I was very disappointed with this tea; it was the only sample I received from the Boston Tea Company that I did not like; the others were all quite enjoyable.

Dried leaf is broken and more grayish than other dragon wells I've seen. This does not taste at all like other dragon wells I've tried. Aroma is slightly sm...

China Dragonwell from Ancora Coffee Roasters

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: China

I found this review that I had written where I didn't have internet access--in the Madison, WI airport, and just entered it now.

This dragonwell has a broken leaf, but the classic dragonwell shape is recognizable. In spite of looking like a lower grade of this tea, this batch is considerably tastier than a lot of w...

Emerald Spring Lung Ching Green Tea from Arbor Teas

This is a great Dragonwell for its price.
I think that it is a good representation of a quality green tea at an affordable cost. Is this the best dragonwell out there? No. But is it a good everyday tea to enjoy? Definitely. The good part about it is that a purchase is in support of a sustainable company that is dedica...

Lung Ching Dragonwell from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: China

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
May. 17th, 2010

If I could drink only one green tea, it would be this one, with its flat, olive-green leaves and irresistible buttery finish. It's very smooth, not bitter or pungent at all, with a deeper, richer flavor than some greens. It does have a vegetal quality, but I'd say the aroma is more like asparagus than grass. I like asp...

Dragon Well pre-Qing Ming First Grade from Teas Etc

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Zhejiang, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 26th, 2010

As a fan of pre-rain Dragon Well I am always anxious to find one with a good flavor for a reasonable price. This one is a great balance of flavor and aroma for a very good price considering it is a pre-Qing Ming tea.
I keep this one on hand throughout the year and look forward to the new harvest.

Dragon Well (Anhui) from Rishi Tea

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Anhui, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 23rd, 2009

I loved this tea although I'm not usually crazy about green. It avoided the planty, health-food associations I usually make with green teas. Instead, there was a lovely, rather robust fragrance, almost floral. This is probably the one green that I will stock in my tea cupboard.

Dragon Well (Anhui) from Rishi Tea

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Anhui, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 17th, 2009

This was a very gentle green tea. Delicate aroma with a hint of toastiness; less grassiness than other dragonwells I've tried. This particular tea is extremely smooth and low in both bitterness and astringency even when I brewed it with water hotter than recommended...I also found it can be brewed much longer than Ri...

Lungching Green Tea from Foojoy

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

While this pales in comparison to loose dragon well teas that I've tried, it's definitely true to the style. The low price and simple packaging of the teabags are deceptive...this tea retains a lot of complexity. It brews a rich golden color and is quite aromatic. If you let it brew a long time, it acquires some ast...

Lungching Green Tea from Foojoy

Nov. 9th, 2009

As with Foojoy's China Black Tea, I found this a surprisingly good value. The black tea was wrapped in individual paper packets, whereas the Lunching box has several aluminum sealed packets containing individual bags. This tea has a pleasant aroma and a decent flavor. It compares favorably to many other green teas sol...

Dragon Well Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 30th, 2009

This teabag contains broken leaves of green tea, but they are more whole than the fannings and dust found in some teabags.

The tea brews a clear golden colour and has a rather strong smokey aroma with some hints of grassyness. It has a crisp flavor with some bite. Even when brewed at a lower temperature, there's s...
