drank Dragonwell by DAVIDsTEA
1373 tasting notes

I picked this up the other day when hearing about the sales sucked me into the DavidsTea store.

Reading *Incendiare*’s note made me think this might be the perfect thing to accompany my sesame chicken http://www.budgetbytes.com/2013/08/easy-sesame-chicken/.

This dragonwell isn’t nearly as buttery as the one I’ve had from Butiki. The flavour is quite floral, and it’s a little astringent. Umm. And now I’m thinking that maybe I didn’t clean my steeper well enough after I last used it. I wasn’t expecting this tea to taste like this!

I like this tea (even if I did accidentally contaminate it), especially with the Asian flavours in the food I’m eating. I wouldn’t necessarily keep it stocked, but I think dragonwells are up there in the ranks of green teas that I like.

As far as the sesame chicken goes, you don’t need to coat the chicken in egg. I think that just seasoning it and sprinkling a little corn starch on it, then frying it hot would work just fine. Once you add the sauce, the crunch goes away a bit…

Oh yeah, I can see this tea going well with something like that rather than just drinking it alone. That sesame chicken recipe looks awesome. And now THAT has me thinking of H&S’s Tokyo. Mmm, green tea and sesame seeds.

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
