In the beginning you may feel a bit disturbed by the strong impression of freshly cut grass.
However…during continuous drinking the grassy touch will change to a pleasant, fruity and smooth experience.
Steeping time has an immense impact of this tea. It is one of the most fragile teas that I have ever come across…it is definetely a challenge getting a brew out of it without bitterness or falling under the idea to have just swollowed a bundle of grass.
Develops great taste if mixed with 4-5 slices of dry ginseng. This opens another door to the profound world of tea complexities.
Very cooling for your body…even if drunk hot.
If the leafs are good quality you may get 5-6 brews out of one portion. Each brew will leave you with a different impression of the (moody) dragon…
