Dragonwell (or Long Jing in Chinese) from the West Lake of Zhejiang province of China, is the most well known and one of China's top three green teas. The legend of its name comes from a story in the ancient China when the farmers of the Hangzhou region had been praying for rain. It has high bud sets and flat, tender, green leaves and is pickled, unfermented, pan-fired and sword-shaped by hand from start to finish in the village of Dragonwell. The firing of the leaf is the step that requires the most finesse. This tea gives a light emerald liquor with a full, chestnut-like flavor and astounding scent.
