One of China’s most well-known teas, Longjing or Dragonwell as it translates, is a must-have in your tea collection. Hand roasted in iron skillets, it is easily recognizable due to the distinctly flattened leaf shape and vibrant green hue. Offering a moderate amount of caffeine it’s a wonderful refreshment at any time of day without the jolt. Equally tasty hot or cold.
