Today marks the Qing Ming (Pure Brightness) Festival in China's eastern Jiangsu province.  The festival is a centuries-old celebration of remembrance and spring, marking the beginning of the spring tea harvest.  Tea harvested before this date has long been renowned for its lighter and more subtle aroma than those picked after the festival.  Enjoy a cup of this wonderful tea today.

Growers are anticipating a good harvest this year, compared to the reduced production last year due to drought and cold weather.  That's good news for all us lovers of Dragon Well.
