Alternative names: Long Jing, Lung Ching, longjing tea, longjing green tea, long jing tea

Dragon Well (Long Jing 龙井) Green tea is in no doubt the most famous and loved Chinese green teas.

Our Dragon Well tea is produced in the Zhe-Jiang region, well known for its rich water resources and production of some of the finest Chinese teas. This Dragon Well is harvested from an organically certified plantation on a high mountain, 1800 meters above the sea level. Smooth flattened tea leaves produce a green jade colour and silky texture when brewed. It has a unique roasted chestnut aroma and beautifully refreshing flavour loved by the green tea consumers. It is also an accessible tea for those trying green tea for the first time. 

Watch the jade colour tea leaves unfolding when brewing in a clear glass pot.

Quality & Package Size:

We offer 3 quality grades (High, premium and exclusive) in a choice of 2 sizes (50 or 100 gm packs).

Our High grade is comparable to teas nominated as top quality in some Australian stores we have sampled. Our exclusive grade is at the level above which a regular tea drinker from the region where the tea was produced would not easily distinguish further improvement in quality.

We take special precautions to purchase new season stock, air transport and store refrigerated to preserve original tea quality.

A gentle and delicate tea that is calming to my spirit. The exclusive grade contains only perfect whole leaves that are far superior in quality to any tea I have seen before!

Bought th tester pack and I have to say, this is one of my favourite. At first I didn't quite like smell but after a while I fell in love wih it. It reminds me of roasted nuts maybe? Very relaxing and pleasant drink. Highly recommended.

  • Free standard shipping for orders of $100 AUD and over within Australia.*

Delivery tracking: 

Parcel tracking is a standard practice now with all our deliveries. We provide tracking numbers on request only for the following reasons:

  2. We have also had feedbacks that certain customers do not wish to have their mail boxes filled with tracking numbers. 

Our current policy is therefore we provide tracking numbers only when they are requested. Please drop us an email if you wish to have the tracking number to track your delivery.
