  • 3 grams of Longjing Tea
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 tsp honey (optional)


  • To make Longjing Tea (Dragon Well Tea), add 3 grams of dried Longjing tea into a teapot or infuser.
  • Heat a saucepan of water to boil. Once it is boiled, take it down from the stove and allow the water to cool for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour the warm water into the cup slowly, allowing the leaves to float on top. Let the tea steep for 2-3 minutes, then strain out the leaves and enjoy! Before serving, you can add a tsp of your preferred sweetener to the tea. We would recommend you to use honey as it is a healthier option.
