Longjing, also known as Dragon Well tea is a well-known pan-roasted variety of green tea. The name Dragon Well comes from a literal translation and the other name stems from the Longjing village in Zhejiang Province in China.
When speaking of pan-roasting, you should note that this is literally a method that has been used for centuries by tea masters and it involves flattening the leaves along the inside vein and frying them in a wok. This method serves a dual purpose as it stops the oxidation process that naturally occurs after picking, but it also gives a toasty aroma with a hint of the sweet taste you might find eating a roasted corn. The unique and rounded flavor coupled with a sort of buttery texture make this team really popular among green team enthusiasts and regular consumers alike.
As is the case with many types of tea hailing from this part of the world, Longjing is rich in amino acids, vitamin C, and catechins. For those of you unfamiliar with catechins, you should know that those compounds are naturally occurring antioxidants belonging to the flavonoids family. We will touch on the importance of those later.

2. Polyphenols (Catechins)

Rather than getting into specific numbers and detail all the ingredients, we will focus on the two of the important ones relevant to the Longjing: Caffeine and Catechins.
