|Lung Ching Tea, also known as Dragonwell, is produced by hand through a 10-part process. Dragonwell is distinguished by its beautiful shape, emerald color, scented smell and tending sweet floral character. In Taiwan, tea is produced according to ancient, time-tested methods and by hand. Dragonwell tealeaves are plucked before the Clear Light Festival or before the spring rains have fallen. Legend says in 250 AD a Taoist monk implored the well dragon to come to the rescue of the poor farmers suffering a crippling drought. Instantly, the clouds came rushing in from every side and poured forth a timely rain. This tea derives its name from this legend.|
Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly, about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180F or 90C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup and let the tea steep for about 3 minutes. Begin enjoying a cup of enchantment but do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low, add more water, and repeat until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
Alternatively, as with all quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot and pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn. Steep for 2-4 minutes to taste, stir, and pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since green tea is enjoyed straight-up.
Iced tea-brewing method (to make 1 qt): Scoop 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher, straining the leaves. Add ice and top off the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. Please note that this tea may tend to be cloudy or milky when poured over ice.
