Jade Dragon (玉龙绿茶) is a tippy style of Yunnan Green tea, which is a Xue Ya #100 varietal growing at and altitude 1300 meters (4300 feet) on the southern slope Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City). The processing is typical of green tea with sun withering, rolling, oxidization, and finally drying.
This is a classic "tippy" style Yunnan Green Tea, a 1 leaf to 1 bud plucking style. It's floral, beany, grassy and sweet when brewed carefully. We recommend brewing gong fu style (short steepings at first) using 85 C water and 4 grams per 100 ml vessel. It can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style.
