An excellent Dragon Well. Likely my favorite tea. Is good for at least two infusions.

It's indeed gives you exactly what you love in smooth green tea. It's not overly strong, but it is very flavorful, tastes great, that's like 4th time I'm ordering it
Dragon Well is my favourite type of tea, and this has exactly the flavour I was looking for. It's not quite as high quality as some from other sources, but at this price it's far better value.

Not only do I love the flavor and aroma of this wonderful tea; I have found it has a bracing, almost medicinal effect. It is head-clearing and mood-elevating for me in a way no other tea is.

This is and dragon pearls are my two favorite go to green teas. I often will go spurts drinking one for a few weeks then switch to the other for a few weeks.

This is the second time I have ordered Dragon Well, as a tea lover I can tell you that this has become part of my morning routine because its smooth flavor and at the same time bold with the consistency of the flavor until the end.
I really feel like it has worked really well for the part of having healthy and energizing side effects.
I always want to try different types of teas, but this one is worth ordering again!

I just received this, and had to write a review: this is a GREAT tea. Subtle but pronounced, delicate but strong. Now on my top 3 list, with Silver Needle (white) and Golden Monkey (black).

I normally drink jasmine green, but this is now my daily and favourite green tea. It’s smooth, subtle, and the best green tea I have tried so far. I am definitely buying some more!
By the far the best Dragon Well I have tried from what is available in the UK.
This specific tea from Tealyra has been a daily staple of mine for the last 5 months or so.
Could not recommend more!

Nous venons de nous procurer ce thé.
D’abord , mentionnons que l’organisation du site de Tealyra est très bien faite. La nagivation est conviviale et les informations sont suffisantes pour faire un choix. Notamment à cause des « reviews ».
Ensuite, concernant ce thé, il est tout simplement délicieux ????. Une odeur invitante, de belles feuilles et un goût qui a’apparente aux meilleurs thés du Japon.
Nous le faisons infuser un peu plus,longtemps que recommandé, mais déprend des goûts de chacun.

I cannot fault this iteration of Dragon Well. I've tried a few other online sources for this tea, some of which are evidently of good repute. I can happily say that Tealyra's kicks all the others firmly into touch. I could tell there was fantastic potential in Dragon Well tea, and it took Tealyra to fully realise that potential for me.
I pour the hot water on the leaves about ten minutes after the kettle has boiled. I put a generous heaped teaspoon of leaves into my basic, traditional, fine-mesh infuser (nice and big, so the leaves have wriggle room) and let it brew for three minutes. Then I dunk the tea four times - quite slowly. This produces what is for me, a perfect mug of tea; no hint of bitterness and a wonderful, subtle taste reminiscent of the purest Gyokuro.
Having experimented a hell of a lot with teas recently, I am now certain that this Dragon Well is my favourite tea. I won't talk about the other two teas I like most, because you'd shout' "Philistine!"

Great smooth long jing taste!
by Barbara C.
This is a great everyday Dragon Well at a great price. My second bag is fresh with large leaves and is very smooth and not bitter.
Dragon Well (or Long Jing) is my favorite Chinese green tea, so I knew I was going to like this one. It’s the first Dragon Well I order from Tealyra, so I can’t compare, but it’s promising! This one has the characteristics of a good quality Long Jing (slippery feel, light glossy green appearance and sweet fragrance). I steeped 1 tsp of tea in a 8 oz. porcelain mug with strainer and lid for about 3 minutes. It was gorgeous! I tried a second infusion. It was still good, but not enough flavorful to make it worth it. I usually keep the 2nd infusion of that type of tea for the evening, when I want a relaxing tea, not too strong tasting and with all the caffeine gone in the first infusion.

My first experience at friends' house last weekend. Tasty and palate coating
Yes, Longjing tea is a very beautiful tea to drink
Just incredible taste and aroma it is, give you a nice relaxing tea time, and also very halty.
When hot this tea is tasty but not mind blowing. I usually do 3 infusions with hot water (in my 4 oz teapot) and then do the 4th in fridge overnight. I don't know if you can do more but I think the 3rd infusion is as good as the 1st with this tea. I also like that the flavor is slightly different in every infusion.
You must definitely try cold brewing this to experience all of the flavors in their full potential. When cold, it is very creamy yet still has a fresh bite and floral aftertaste. Really heavenly. (Take all of these adjectives with a grain of salt because I am very new to tea.)

Very vegetal but authentic and charming.
I enjoy this. So hard to find good tea and I got lucky with this one
The Long Jing is not the best I've ever had, but very enjoyable nonetheless. The aroma is very clearly Long Jing (Dragon Well), and the liquid is golden-green, delicate but with a distinctive, slightly sweet vegetal taste of good long jing, refreshing but light.
