The Art of Hand Roasting
In marking Dragonwell, newly sprouted tea leaves are hand roasted in a wok to give them a flat, shiny appearance. This traditional and artisanal technique determines the flavorful profile and value of the tea. It take about one hour to roast each pound of tea.
Rich, toasty aroma. Makes a buttery brew with flavor reminiscent of roasted chestnuts.
The Tao of Tea
Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work serving as a connecting thread for tea culture in 1997. Practicing this art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiast from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight, and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul.
