Canton Tea Organic Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea Bulk Pack 250 g

  • Rare loose leaf yellow tea – like green tea but sweeter and nuttier
  • Certified organic by the soil association
  • From the original source in west lake, fujian
  • Sweet and grassy, rounded off by a soft, chesnut flavour.

If you don’t know dragonwell it is very different from other green teas. It has a stronger, fresher flavour, slightly nutty and with none of the bitterness of most green teas – even if you brew it for 5-10 minutes. I have recently found the quality of different dragonwell brands very variable. One was barely drinkable and one tasted so bad i sent it back (thanks amazon for the great returns process). This one is a solid 4 stars – not my favourite but a good flavour. It also has the advantage of being organic which is important as some china green teas have been shown to have high toxins. Check out the the 50g tin as it currently has a special offer making it better value.

I really enjoy drinking this tea.

Canton Tea Organic Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea Bulk Pack 250 g : Tea good but packaging is terrible. Nice taste, like a buttery spinach type taste but not as astringent. I’ve knocked a star off because of the poor packaging, the seal broke after a day. This has never happened to me before when i’ve bought products in these type of bags, i’ve had to transport to a airtight container,thankfully i had one otherwise expensive tea would have been ruined and i would have asked for a refund. The company should give an option for larger caddies.

  1. We now drink this from breakfast till evening. Good price for a quality tea. Find it best with 2 infusions at 2mins each with 70 degrees centigrade water.

  2. This particular brand tastes like dragonwell should although i had to use more leaves. I have been drinking dragonwell tea for 10 years and i appreciate there are various grades. This particular brand tastes like dragonwell should although i had to use more leaves than other brands i have tried. But the real cruncher comes at the price.Previously i bought from another company with twice the quantity of tea at the same price. I used the same amount of tea from both companies and there was no difference in taste. The three stars are for taste( ive had better) but i would only give one for value for money.
