Description

Jade Gyokuro is a very unique green tea that originates from En Shi, in Hubei province. It is the only famous Chinese green tea that is processed using steam deactivation entirely. The leaves are reminiscent of a Japanese gyokuro or sencha; though even with the steam processing method an unique appearance, this remains quite Chinese in character.

This tea also has a long history. En Shi City has produced tea since the Tang Dynasty (618-907). History suggests that this style of tea was first created during Emperor Kang Xi's reign. In 1945, Jade Gyokuro was introduced to Japan and it was so well accepted that it was called “Chinese Gyokuro”.

Gyrokuro is shade-grown, which increases the levels of chlorophyll in the leaf- this adds depth, flavor, color, and complexity to the tea, and significantly increases its nutritional content as well. Our Jade Gyokuro has a silky mouthfeel, is “buttery”, full-flavored, with a characteristically Chinese green tea flair.

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.

Un must!

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!"

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.

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.
