Legend holds that a drought was remedied when a monk summoned a dragon that brought rains to fill the village well. To this day, the well nourishes the meadow of Zhejiang, near China’s West Lake, where this dew-drenched green tea is cultivated each spring. Prized for its unique flat, sword-shaped leaves, jade green color, fresh aroma and gentle, mellow flavor.
