The Top Grade Dragon Well is a green tea harvested in the Spring season every year. According to a popular Chinese legend, there was a time when Emperor Qian Long of the Qing Dynasty visited the tea plantations in Hangzhou and unintentionally brought some fresh tea leaves back to Beijing with him. Upon arrival, the Empress Dowager caught a sweet aroma emitting from the Emperor’s pocket, where the tea leaves were. Out of curiosity, the leaves were brewed. Its unique taste captivated both the Emperor and the Empress Dowager; and from that day onwards, the Dragon Well became the Imperial Tea.
