Brewing instructions
Description

Dragon Well Superior, as the name suggests, is a 'superior' quality Chinese Green Tea. It often goes by the name of Longjing Tea, which refers to the Chinese village from where it originates.

Legend has it that one could glimpse dragons circling the waters of the Longjing village well. Seeing a dragon in China signifies auspiciousness and longevity, which indeed applies to this very Tea.

According to scientific research, Dragon Well Superior can improve daily living in small yet significant ways. Studies indicate that its frequent consumption can lower "bad" LDL Cholesterol, thus improving cardiovascular health. It can also enhance cognitive function. This could, in turn, potentially reduce the risks of developing dementia.

Dragon Well Tea Facts

  • Did you know that Dragon Well Superior has a reputation for having tasting notes similar to nuts and butter?
  • Did you know that, according to Chinese folklore, any Tea that uses water from the Longjing well brings good luck?
  • Did you know that many newly-weds in China drink it on their wedding day for a long, happy and fortune-filled marriage?

About Chinese Green Tea

According to legend, Chinese Green Tea dates back to 2737 BCE! Its popularisation, however, came about thanks to a Chinese author named Lu Yu. During the eighth century CE, Lu Yu published a book entitled "Ch'a Ching", meaning "Tea Classic". It proved a tremendous success, with particular emphasis on Green Tea benefits.

Since then, China and indeed the world haven't look back. Green Tea continues to increase in popularity at a rapid rate. One of the most famous Green Teas, however, is that of our very own Dragon Well Superior. We honour this fact by packing it fresh to order here in our Kent-based factory. This ensures quality and consistency with every cup brewed.

Health Benefits of Dragon Well Superior

Did you know that Dragon Well Superior contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants? Its antioxidants, in particular, can combat free radicals in the body. This, in turn, slows down the process of natural, though harmful, human oxidation. Ultimately, this reduces the risk of developing several chronic conditions including cardiovascular disease.

In 2015, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Green Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risk of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower risk of cancer than those who drank none.
