drank Dragonwell by DAVIDsTEA
302 tasting notes

My Dragonwell came in the Orient Express sample pack. I’m not exactly sure how to rate this because it’s my first experience with Dragonwell (I’m also not a big fan of green tea).

Drinking it, the flavor starts out very vegetal, slightly buttery and ends with nutty. The aftertaste is something different and hard to describe, it lingers in my mouth for a while too.

Not sure how much I like this. It’s enjoyable for a green tea that’s heavy on the vegetal flavor. But the aftertaste just leaves me feeling confused. I probably won’t buy any additional Dragonwell from David’s, just so I can try a different company and gain more experience.

Bio

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

80-89: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
