Still 2 tea’s from my green tea explorer left to taste and review. This one is the Dragon Well green tea. Tea dry tea leafs are really flat and you can see they are hand pressed in a wok.
I’m making 3 infussions from about a teaspoon off leafs, hard to judge the correct amount because they are flat and don’t really fit well on my teaspoon! So after getting the water to 70°c i’m brewing these for 3min in my small glass teapot. The color off this green tea is very pale green, the lightest color off green i’ve had in a long time!
I’m letting it cool down to get sipping soon, altough i’m a bit worried that i might have been using not enough leaf, like i said hard to judge so i’m letting it cool some more!
10min later: finally i’m going to taste this tea! while still a bit warm for my green tea comfort zone it seems that this one is sweet in taste and maybe a bit creamy. Didn’t remember this being creamy (i had this one maybe a year ago to) but i’m liking the taste. I let this cool even more and now i’m getting a great nutty like after taste in my mouth!
Its a good quality dragon well, it looks pretty good in a glass teapot and i’m liking the after taste! Usually i’m more fond off real grassy green tea’s but this one is different and i like that!
edit: over the rest off the afternoon i had my second and third cup, the second cup was the superior one in taste with a 4min steep. The third cup with about 5min on the clock was good but more watery and a bit less in taste then the first 2 brews, but nevertheless still appealing to make!
