    The new 2018 Pre-Qingming Dragonwell is here! This early spring tea is all about a fine and subtle sweetness, and a long, drawn out aftertaste and crisp texture. Cool spring weather produces a small harvest of truly sweet tea. This will be Mrs. Li’s first picking of the season, carefully hand-finished by her husband. Her true original cultivar Dragonwell (Longjing Qunti) grows on the mountain slopes of Shi Feng and draws in sweet mountain spring water.


  • 'Many years ago a glass fell from heaven, glowing brightly, and where it fell, tea trees spring forth... The tea grew sweeter and sweeter, like its heavenly counterpart. Soon after, an earthquake sunk the cup into the ground where it became a well'
