Limited No. 59, Lion's Peak Dragonwell

Harvested in early spring from Lion's Peak or Shi Feng (the most sought after area for Dragonwell), this pan-roasted green tea is famous for its smooth, vegetal, roasted chestnut flavor. It has a rich, sweet finish and a pale green liquor that reminds one of the mist-covered mountains from which it hails, making this dragonwell a particularly delightful cup. 

Lion's Peak Dragonwell is a Bellocq Limited Tea. It has been purchased in a small quantity and is available only from our tea atelier and online.
