Ordered a bunch of shi feng green tea from various sources and this “premium dragonwell” tea. Coincidentally only to find out this this is actually from shi feng as well the latest of the harvests I bought so far.

Today I had a mini shi feng flight without knowing this tea is indeed good but unfortunately I tasted this premium long jing after Jing Tea Shop QM shi feng AAA so it was definitely over shadowed by the latter. This tea was a nice bridge between generic “zhejiang” dragonwell and first flush shi feng. It had less sweetness and less complexity but more “tea taste” and the slight bitter/brothiness I look for in a dragonwell and personally find pleasant.

Can not say too much else it is a great example of dragonwell that could become a daily drinker if the price is right

I try to refrain from numerically rating a tea until I have tried brewing at least an oz of it with various different parameters and vessels (hotter/colder water, longer/shorter times, yixing/gaiwan etc)
