A wonderful modern take on one of China’s most prized teas, at one time reserved for the Imperial Court. Big Buddha Dragonwell is produced in a new growing region for this style of tea, which originally hails from Hangzhou. This version is made in Xin Chan County, which is renowned for a very large Buddha statue & ancient temple perched atop the highest mountain in the area, hence the addition of “Big Buddha” to this tea’s name.

The result is a lovely, complex tea with alluring light chestnut & floral notes as well as pleasingly fresh, green taste that arises from a combination of the pristine environment where the tea is grown, as well as a skilled tea maker who embraces the tea’s inherent light, spring-like nature by delicately & carefully wok-drying the leaves by hand without overheating or roasting.



SILK ROAD teas are made with premium quality, fresh, organic botanicals. Exceptional freshness, combined with organic growing practices, results in higher antioxidant levels & superior flavour. What’s just as important as the premium quality ingredients we select for our teas, are the ingredients we never use – no artificial flavours or colours – just pure, healthy, deliciousness in every sip!

I have had this tea for waaayyyy too long without trying it, but I woke up in a green tea mood yesterday and so it seemed like the perfect time to steep it up. This is a pretty nutty/chestnut forward tea, with some cornsilk notes as well. However, after the first steep it also gets some very distinct and vegetal green bean notes, which are maybe a little less up my alley. It was an alright little mini session overall, but not something I’d be likely to steep up again all that soon.
