Immediately upon opening the package, the smells of this tea hits you in the face. It smelles like buttery, green tea.

The smell of the brewing tea is delicious. Buttery and creamy notes. Slight hint of salt and sweet. Also the faint smell of roasted nuts.

The tea liqour is thick and heavy, feels weight-y in my mouth. Tastes like buttery, creamy green tea. There is slight salty flavour. Reminds me very much of a sencha.

As it cools there is a more roasted nut flavour, and definitely becomes more sweet.

I brewed for 1 min. I like my greens a bit lighter, so next time will brew for 30-45 sec.

This is my first dragon well and I am very impressed.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
