Fresh From Origin
Dreaming of the Tiger Spring is a famous attraction in Hangzhou, China. The spring features a sculpture of a dozing monk and two tigers. The water, which is filtered through quartzite, is said to be some of the finest in all of China, leading to the belief that the best Lung Ching tea is brewed using the spring’s water. Lung Ching tea, also called “Dragonwell,” gains its nickname from another nearby water feature, Longjing’s Dragon Well. Containing water that is supposedly denser than most, it’s said that dragon-like patterns form on its surface when it mixes with the lighter rain.
