2009 Imperial Lotus Heart and Imperial Dragon Well Are Here!

The first green teas of 2009 have arrived! The fantastic and rare Imperial Lotus Heart Dragon Well (lian rui) is available online or in our teahouses for $680 per pound or $50 for a one-ounce sample. Our signature Imperial Dragon Well is offered at $480 per pound or $35 for a one-ounce sample. Due to adverse weather in China, quantities of both are extremely limited, so order early to make sure you don't miss this long-awaited taste of spring.

Roy is excited about the quality of this year's first dragon wells. He emailed us, "I can safely say that we have the best tea this year will produce and I am very proud of all the folks involved to make it happen."

To celebrate the beginning of "Tea New Year" and help you enjoy your favorite green tea we're also offering a great deal through the end of this month, only in our online store: 10% off all gaiwans and glass teapots. We recommend these types of thin-bodied teaware for delicate and highly temperature-sensitive green tea.
