19 Tasting Notes
I’ve had Adagio’s dragonwell before but it simple can’t lay a hand on this. This is only my second dragonwell but wow . . . . The smell is like roasted nuts and orchids. The liquor is a nice light yellow and the taste fills the entire mouth and this tea is very creamy. Highly recommended! will be buying more!
I steeped this tea 2-3 times and was pretty dissappointed at first. It was incredibly bland and dull. However, the fourth steep I just went all in and steeped two teaspoons at 205 for around 5 minutes. When I smelled the liquor I had to do a double take! It smelled like someone has poured peach juice in my cup. Let it go long like everyone suggests! This can be a great tea!
For white tea this sure makes quite a robust cup. Many have remarked on the dark color for it being a white tea and I have to agree. A brew of about 175 degrees for 3-5 minutes makes a dark cup. However, that doesn’t mean this is not a good tea. It is the first white I have ever tried and if they all taste like this then I’m hooked! While it’s not the best thing I’ve ever drunk, it is well worth the price. There is somewhat of a vegetableness to it but it still remains sweet.
You really have to be in a relaxed mood to appreciate this group. It is very characteristic of your standard green. Slightly grassy, it is also layered with a small layer of caramel sweetness and reminiscent of roasted popcorn. A superb evening tea to chill with. One of my favorite greens I’ve tried!
