The new Ms. Li’s Dragonwell is up on the Verdant page, & I’m still drinking the old one. I still have enough for 2 more sessions too.

This is a really nice Dragonwell. I used to be a huge Dragonwell fan, & I still love it. Anyone who reads my posts knows I love Black teas better, but there was a time when I drank cup after cup of greens, loving everything sip.

I’m using the Dragonwell brewing method, per Verdant’s suggestions:
3G + 8oz glass cup X 175F
Blowing the leaves away doesn’t really seem to ever work well for me, but I don’t mind chewing up a leaf here & there. Eventually they all sink to the bottom of the cup, problem solved!
Nice & spring like!

Hahaha! I’m not big on blowing the leaves either! But I love this method and longjing leaves are not bad tasting anyways :-)

We can all use more veggies in our diets, right ;)

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
