    For the third year in a row, Li Xiaoping is excited to be sharing her family's new Dragonwell Black Tea! She uses the same delicate early buds as her famous green tea, hand-picked from the slopes of Shi Feng, raised on sweet mountain spring water and covered in high elevation mist to protect against sunlight. After light twisting and rolling, this sweet, rich and distinctly mineral-laden Ming Qian tea is then set out in bamboo baskets and loosely covered for ten to fifteen hours and allowed to oxidize in the afternoon heat. This oxidation process brings out savory malty flavors in Li Xiaoping’s Dragonwell that show the unique texture of the region in a completely different light.

  • 'If you go back far enough, Dragonwell and Laoshan tea come from the same ancestors, and are still considered the same cultivar. If the He Family can use Longjing Qunti to make black tea, then why not Li Xiaoping?'
