drank Dragonwell by Adagio Teas
110 tasting notes

OK, I think I must be doing something wrong here. I got a sample of this tea from Adagio today. My first attempt at brewing came out tasting of hot water. I set my Utilitea kettle for green tea, and steeped for three minutes by timer. It tasted like bathwater. I threw that steep out, and steeped again, adding much more tea, about 3 tbsps total for a two cup pot. This was somewhat better, but the result was just mildly sweet, without much in the way of a distinctive flavor.

I suspect this is operator error – my only previous experiences with green tea have been of the premeasured bagged variety. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well Dragonwell is supposed to have a sort of a delicate, subtle taste to it.

I have this lying around but have yet to try it. I’ll get to it tomorrow and let you know if I notice anything different.

So I know comments were forever ago, but I had this Dragonwell this weekend, and you did nothing wrong, it tasted like hot water.
