  1. Sure, you make wonderful tea, but how's your Social Credit Score? Be careful or Pooh-Bear is gonna shove a camera up your butt!

  2. I quit studying. Why? cuz the learning system is really bad nowadays. if i would give a chance to learn that, I will do my best.

  3. Choose your green tea
    Chinese Ancient Green Tea
    British Pukka or Twinnings Tea
    Indian Herbal Spice Green Tea
    Japanese Green Macha Tea

    But Goro from Great Jdrama Kodoku no Gurume always drink Oolong Tea.

  4. Well to be honest nobody really wants to work slave like conditions for pretty minimal pay. Like yeah tea is p vital but the dudes working like 12 hours a day for one 2 pounds of product that gets dried so it weighs even less. Especially in India/Bangladesh it’s super common that people who work in tea gardens don’t even get paid real money so they can’t even leave the job. Sure it looks good on the outside cuz the area is pretty and stuff but people aren’t leaving because they don’t respect their parents trade, there is just a whole sinister air around the trade so people are eager to leave. More people going into stem and stuff means the faster machines can do this task for us anyways and we can crush jobs that require people to work incredibly hard for no profit

  5. I LOVE dragon well tea. They are naturally sweet, and yet has a savory, nutty and buttery mouthfeel to it. Such a shame that he can't find someone to pass his knowledge to.

  6. The way you narrate the stories always makes me want to give up my life and join people in the videos to help them with whatever they do. It's a great feeling to have. Thank you for this.

  8. Let me go, Ill learn it you can learn so much from just going and doing than sitting in a classroom, dreading that your graduation relies on getting one person to pull their weight

  9. China has so much culture, goodness. I want to know about all of it 🙂 this video sparked my interest in Asian cultures even more

  10. What a great opportunity for a study abroad! I think it would be grand to learn the trades of tea right there in his own environment.

  11. I watched this then I saw Hangzhou and I realized I've totally been there literally to the fields, idk if it's the exact same one but it was dragon well tea in hangzhou

  12. I appreciate Dragonwell just a little more. As an avid tea drinker this speaks closely to something I am passionate about. Goodness, there needs to be an apprenticeship program to teach retain and market such craftsmanship. On one hand I understand parents want a better life for their children, on another hand, this art, this trade this product has stood the test of time with wars and drastic changes of government. Maybe he has to search for labor outside of that region. Chinese communism is not serving this trade at all. In the rest of the world the true experts get paid, perhaps the product needs to be priced and marketed better. This tea is not as appreciated if you drink it out of a steeping bag in a paper cup. Look at how he serves it, the holding container, the clear glass and porcelain. Maybe under apprenticeship masters stay masters to train and direct the work flow and artisan or hobbyist people continue the craft in smaller quantities of time under the guidance of a career long tea master. Think about it microbrew, hatch chilies and smaller coffee estates have adjusted by marketing, delivering and romanticizing their products. All of them charge more for their stories, regions and unique flavor, why can't this Dragonwell estate do the same.

  13. I visited the tea farm this summer and saw how the tea leaves were processed. We even went to a farmer's home where he made tea in person and gave us a sample. Ended up buying a couple of bags of it. The tea was even packed by hand.

  14. I was in those tea fields last week! The tea is extremely expensive (, up to 30 USD per gram) it's light, nutty & slightly sweet. They drink it in those cups because they eat the tea leaves after. Also the pan they use to fry can get up to 400°C I don't fully grasp how some of them don't use gloves!

  15. sisters my parents making me think that i cant do shit without a university education when i want to feel the tranquility and peace of a tea harvester

  16. I visited the Hangzhou farm 4 years ago and got to try real Longjing Tea and it was really good. I highly reccomend it to people who love tea. (BTW for those who want to know how to differentiate high grade and low grade tea leaves, you can see from the container. Real longjing is packed in a dark green cylinder like bottle. I know this because when I bought it at the farm the owner packed it right in front of me from the baskets that they dry them)
    The price might be a bit expensive based on the grade of the tea leaves. I got mine at 3000 RMB for 500g

  17. Forget about getting the best quality for any foreigners, the best and superior quality are so freaking expensive now…10yrs ago, i used to buy "Premium" grade for RMB300/500G…Now easily RMB2000/500G

  18. Very nice tea. Beautiful landscape.
    The process seems very manual. Using hands for frying hot tea is as manual as it can get 🙂

  19. So it is no one going to talk about how he fried the tea leaves with his bare hands??? They must be made of iron or something

  20. wtf ill drop out of school right now and go become a tea hermit and only make tea and paint for the rest of my life. my cat will catch the rodents so they dont steal the leaves. i'll become this guys student

  21. Growing and picking by hand is pretty obsolete these days, dont see how people these days could start that kind of business and do well with modern automation

  22. Dragon well tea is the best, I would love to work as a tea panner, live the simple life, keeping history alive unfortunately I don't speak Chinese and I live on the otherside of the world lol

  23. A shame that this noble and beautiful tradition may die out, personally I’d love to learn and make this tea. It happens to be my favorite Green tea

  24. Long Jing (Lung Ching), often translated as Dragonwell tea, is by far my favourite green tea, as far as I can tell in Europe. It has a quite fruity aroma, compared to the other green teas, but which is all natural. I have a lot of respect for the Chinese people from the Zhejiang province around Hangzhou, keeping their traditions and their highest quality claims alive. They look so calm and far from the western restlessness. Respect & greetings to China from Germany / Europe. Keep your heritage alive. The whole world is your market!

  25. Hold up, do people really think dragon well is the best green tea? Its one of the cheapest green teas you can buy, and its pan fried. I've had dragon well tea a handful of times, and would take kabusecha or gyokuro over it any day, but maybe I just haven't had the right dragon well? Honestly, I think its shit.

  26. I would love to work with that gentleman it's a fantasy of mine to disappear and work either the rice fields or the tea hills
