Dragon’s Well Green Tea
Dragon’s Well Green Tea is nothing less than the world-renowned, authentic Long Jing from a village near Hangzhou, China. This is the premium, first spring picking (before the Qing Ming Festival), and the picking standard is one bud and two leaves. The tea is laboriously hand-harvested and hand-processed using centuries-old local, artisanal techniques. It is a loose whole leaf and bud tea (the leaves are not ripped, chopped, or powdered). No pesticides were used on this tea.
The photos here are not of just any green tea farm, but of the farm this tea comes from. Just like with the chrysanthemum tea, Earthwise Beauty Founder sent her in-laws to find a truly great quality Dragon’s Well Green Tea. The family traveled to the farm personally, translated pages of questions, obtained satisfactory answers, and bought the first batch of tea. And they took these breathtaking photos.
Quality tea is brewed many times in China, not just once. That is because the tea leaves are so full of flavor, and also out of respect for the specialness of the tea and its artisanal production. We recommend brewing Long Jing tea up to four times. It is so easy to brew: just sprinkle a few leaves into a cup or mug and brew for a minute or two. The whole leaves stay intact and eventually settle toward the bottom, so the tea can be enjoyed unstrained.

Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.Browse All Products
