Dragon Well - also known under the name Longjing - is green tea that is roasted in a pan, by hand and in small volumes at a time. What is special about Dragon well is that the leaves have the shape of a sword and they get that by "flat-frying" tea leaves in a hot pan before they are dried. The heat and tossing that is done initiates a reaction in the leaves, resulting in a pleasant roasted aroma and a nutty sweetness.
What distinguishes green tea from white tea is that the leaves are roasted or steamed (most common for Japanese tea). Green tea can also be twisted, shaped or rolled during processing. The finest green teas are shaped and fried in a wok with just a few hundred grams at a time.
An organic product is produced in a way that takes the environment into account by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides. It's good for the planet, but also for the tea, the farmer and you. By buying organic teas, you support healthy and long-term tea production.
We are proud to be the largest Norwegian brand importer of organic tea. To be approved by Debio and use the definition Organic, not only must the ingredients be certified organic, but our own plant must also be certified by Debio and controlled by Mattsilynet.
In addition to import controls from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, we go beyond the requirements by also taking random samples for pesticides/pesticides and other pollutants.
It is important that tea is stored protected from air and light. That's why we sell all our teas packed in tight aluminum bags with a zip lock.
