drank Dragonwell by The Tea Spot
87 tasting notes

This is actually the second time I’ve tried this, but I was unable to write a review sooner.

The liquor itself is very light in color, even lighter than many of the greens I’ve had in the past. The aroma of the tea in the cup was very mild, almost non-existent. However, the wet leaf aroma is pungent and almost earthy. I’m having trouble finding just the right word to describe the this scent.

As for the tea itself, it’s a very mellow green tea. A very light background note of roasted flavor, but it’s almost not even noticeable.

This tea is very nice a subtle, but I’m not sure I’d drink it too regularly. I don’t care too much for green teas and usually enjoy a heartier flavor, so this may be in part related to the fact that I’ve had a lot of green and white tea today and none of the stronger flavors I normally consume in such vast quantities.

most ‘good’ quality Lung Ching/longjing/Dragon well teas have a note of nutty almost pistachio that can be an elusive flavor.

I’ve tried several dragonwells, even the high end ones bore me.

Oh, yes! I think “nutty” is the scent I couldn’t pinpoint. It was mostly just with the wet leaves, though. Not really present in the tea too much.

For me, dragonwell teas often have a “stoney” flavor, but I’ve also had one that was kind of citrus-y in a surprising way. Nut is a good word, too- I never think of it that way. But it’s true the Dragonwell is such a standard because the ideal is just so sweet and smooth… and that can sometimes be underwhelming.

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
