Where Dragon Well Green Tea Comes From
Dragon well tea is defined by where it’s grown – near the Shi Feng mountain (Lion’s Peak) above Dragonwell Village in the Chinese Zhejiang Province. This tiny province consists of family-owned plots of tea farmers. We source our tea from the Jiande Tea Garden in the Zhejiang Province. Due to the small size of the region, their annual harvest is limited and highly sought-after. The region’s soil is a unique blend of white sand and quartz, imparting a distinct minerality to the tea that grows there. The Shi Feng mountain range protects the farms from the air pollution of nearby cities, meaning the tea grows in a cleaner environment. After harvest, the tea leaves are pan-fired and roasted to bring out their bold, toasty aroma and distinct flavor. They’re then processed into their distinctive flat appearance that sets them apart visually from other green teas.
Our premium organic dragon well green tea contains no added ingredients. That means when you sit down to enjoy a cup, you’ll be able to enjoy all the complexities and nuances of this unique varietal.

Health Benefits of Dragon Well Green Tea
Improved Cognitive Function
Tea’s unique combination of caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine produces energy and mental focus without the jitters many people experience from drinking coffee. This combination tends to produce more stable energy without spikes and a subsequent crash.
Green tea is filled with antioxidants, which have been found to help prevent and reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation in the body has been linked to several cancers. To get the most benefits, drink your green tea without milk.
Improved Oral Health
Green tea contains catechins, which are associated with better oral health and reductions in bad breath.
Cardiovascular Disease Prevention
Cardiovascular disease is prevalent in many parts of the world. Studies have shown that green tea can help reduce unhealthy cholesterol levels and protects LDL (bad) cholesterol from oxidizing in the body.
