I have waited awhile to try this one, wanting to have the time to prepare it Dragonwell style which was the recommended method on Verdant’s website. I measured out 3 Gms and placed it in a very broad shallow 6 oz porcelain teacup which was part of a huge set of hand-painted bone china my great-aunt, a professional china painter, had made for me. The beautifully painted delicate dogwood blossoms on this teacup were a nice contribution to my experience with this tea. I soon ran in to a stumbling block in that I just could not drink it at such a hot temperature, and I was afraid that letting it cool down with the leaves in the cup would change the results quite a bit. So I strained out the leaves and proceeded Gongfu style. Once the first cup cooled some, I was able to thoroughly enjoy it. Though Dragonwell style is suggested as the preferred way, I certainly enjoyed it brewed Gongfu as well. It is delicate, sweet, a little vegetal in a very good way, and certainly not bitter or drying to the mouth. I’m glad I purchased enough of it that I can experiment a little and maybe even try it chilled. To summarize, this is a wonderful Dragonwell, even though I wasn’t able to prepare it in the preferred way.
