I was so excited and surprised when my A&D DFT Series 1 arrived today, only three days after I had ordered it.

The Dragonwell came in a medieval green and white labeled tin. The leaves are flat and varies in shade from light-medium to very dark green. The smell is green tea, vegetal, musty, and soft. The tea is a pale yellow and oh so good! The leaves became long and thin and muted deep spring green. The smell was fresh and tea-y. The tea tastes green and light and a bit bitter in a good way. It’s Damn Fine and I’m about to brew the leaves again for a second cup.

Sounds great! I caved and had bought these as well! I can’t wait to try them out! :)

Excellent! I need to try this at a lower temperature. I think I had mine around 177-178 and I think it was a tad too high. Will try it around 170.

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
