This is excellent!!!! I got this as a sample with my purchase from Yezi,,,which I must say has terrific customer service and website!!!!!!!
Grown in the town of Longjing, near the west Lake of the Zhe Jiang Province of China.
I brewed this in a glass teapot.
The dry leaf is beautiful. All uniform, flattened, moss green and yellow tinted raffia-like leaves. It smells so fresh, like green beans and sea salt.
The liquor is a light, light pearl green color and it smells like green beans, and butter as well.
I feel that Yezi’s quality tea and perfect steeping instructions have allowed me to enjoy the best Dragon Well that I have had. I love their instructions. They are on the money with help on best tea ware to use, temp, and amount of tea to water.
All the other Dragon Well teas that I have tried have had a lima bean note but this one does not. It is straight butter, sea salt (not seaweed), green bean notes and it’s good stuff. No astringency either,,,very smooth and creamy. Yumm

I like Ayurveda, Yoga, Zumba,

Love chefs and foodies. Love veggies!!!!
I avoid artificial and processed foods such as diet sodas because I think those things affect your palate for tasting teas, foods, wine.
I always use filtered Culligan water for tea, no tap or bottled so I don’t find many teas I dislike bc I start with super delicious water.

Also enjoy bonsai, xeriscape gardening, my doggie, & all nature.

Preferred brewing method: Gaiwan

Favorite Varietals:
Ye Sheng (wild)
Yunnan Da Ye (large leaf)

I have stopped rating teas with a numerical value here on Steepster because I realized on May 13, 2014 (a tea enlightenment lol) that once you start to learn what teas you like, get practiced and good at gong fu, and which companies are selling quality tea,,,they are all 100’s to me because I purchase and drink what I like and the best I can find.
I respect all the work that goes into the tea that I am drinking and I like thinking about the different terroirs they come from.

Namaste!
