Imperial status.

Dragon Well green tea is renowned for its high quality within the green tea world. The leaf is large, broad and dark green and once infused, it offers a bright  cup with a delicate and sweet almost fruity character. This is just how a green tea should be! The leaves are hand rolled before drying out to stop the oxidisation process (this is what makes green tea different to black teas and oolong teas). As they have minimal processing (like white teas) they retain all the taste, antioxidants and health benefits within the leaves. Win win!

This ones a winner of a Great Taste Award. 

Fun fact: This impressive green tea earned imperial status ('Gong Cha') by the Emperor during the Qing dynasty. It is also known as Longjing tea and is one of the finest teas produced in China, for this reason it is often given as a gift

How to make the perfect Dragon Well tea

Step 1: Use one teaspoon per cup

Step 2: Use water that has cooled to 80 degrees, adding freshly boiled water to green tea will cause the taste to be bitter! (You can do this by adding a splash of cold water first or allowing the kettle to cool down for approximately 2 mins)

Step 3: Brew for 90 seconds, or leave for longer according to personal taste

Step 4: Green tea is best without milk & can be resteeped 3-5 times

My worst nightmare, you’re out of stock!

Guilt free sipping

At We Are Tea, we're on a mission to bring the highest quality tea to the masses in a way that everyone can be proud of. Our blends are ethically sourced via the Ethical Tea Partnership which works on facilitating strategic sustainability projects, rigorous health and safety standards, and increasing farmer's resilience to climate change.

Our plastic free tea bags are made from soilon, a bi-product of corn starch which can fully biodegrade under the correct conditions in 3 – 6 months. 

We call this guilt-free sipping, and it's tea-rrific

Ingredients: Each box contains 75g of loose leaf tea 

Storage instructions: Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
