The "well" is an actual spring-fed well (a circular stone enclosure where the water is gathered) with a temple and a teahouse nearby--not far from Hangzhou. Legend has it that during a severe drought a resident monk summoned up a lucky dragon he'd heard was in the neighborhood. He prayed, and lo, the rains came, the crops were saved, and the peasants rejoiced.
West Lake Dragon Well Tea:
Tea has long been grown in hills around the West Lake. In "Classics on Tea" written by Lu Yu of the Tang Dynasty, the first treatise on tea leave production, the West Lake area was recorded as tea producing area. In the Song Dynasty, West Lake Dragon Well Tea was presented to the court as tributes.
West Lake dragon well tea is renowned as "green in hue, strong fragrance, mellow taste and pretty appearance". It is soft but far, fragrant but fresh, having a distinctive style. Poets always express their ardent love for West Lake Dragon Well Tea using the beautiful words like "golden sprout" and uniqueness. So it's not strange that a poet wrote the following poem for dragon well tea: " Such scenery is so wonderful that I'd rather be a tea grower than a poet."
The Dragon Well Tea can be divided into four marks, namely, "Lion", "Dragon", "Cloud" and "Tiger". Among them, "Lion" is taken as the best. Tea leaves of the Dragon Well Tea is just like a bowl of pins, flat and graceful, smooth and even, fresh yellowish green. When soaked in the teacup, it stands straight high, looking like a flower.
