This Pre-Qingming Dragonwell was picked just days ago! This tea is all about a fine and subtle sweetness, and a long, drawn out aftertaste and crisp texture. This is Mrs. Li’s first picking of the season, selected from her highest-elevation tea plants and carefully hand-finished by her husband. Her true Dragonwell grows on the pure mountain slopes of Shi Feng and draws in sweet mountain spring water.

" Drinking such a prized green tea is a quiet and meditative experience- a chance to listen to the subtle tasting notes, and appreciate the flavor imparted by the air, water and soil of Dragonwell.... "
