The new 2018 Pre-Qingming Dragonwell is almost 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. Mrs. Li has just picked her 2018 early spring harvest; pre-orders will packed and air-shipped directly after picking, shipping to you by the first week of May (or earlier).
