More about Dragonwell tea:

Long Jing, or “Dragon Well,” is a classic Chinese green tea that undergoes special pan-firing and hand-shaping in hot woks to give the tender spring-harvested tea leaves a flat, sword blade shape. Dragon Well traditionally has a rich, savory and fresh flavor accented by hints of toasted chestnut.
