Raising the rating here. I think this is my fave tea of the moment. and green is my least preferred type. Yup it’s that good.
So sweet and ohhhhh did I mention it tastes like sugary spun goodness? I get redundant when excited :D

I’m guessing the photo here is wrong. I’ve got tons of DragonWell Longjing teas. Maybe we can do a trade at some point. As a matter of fact I just did a free 2 oz giveaway of some Hayes DragonWell. You’re not missing anything though.

Hi Mark, you’re right, it’s not the right pic at all!
A trade would be lovely, let’s do it!!

I went ahead and updated the photo and description from their site. My current selection of Dragonwell (or “Dragonwell style”) teas are:

• VerdantTea – 5g Spring Harvest Dragonwell-Style Laoshan Green
• VerdantTea – 1oz Mrs. Li’s Dragonwell Laoshan Green
• Hayes Tea – 20g Dragonwell Green Tea
• Teavivre – 1lb Organic Superfine Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea
• Teavivre – 3.5oz Premium Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea

I’ve got loads of the Teavivre stuff, though you can get free samples from them directly. As for the VerdantTeas, you can take the Laoshan. People love that, but I’m not a fan. The Mrs. Li’s is expensive, so I’d give up a sample, but not much more. That one is very unique. And though I gave away all my unopened Hayes Dragonwell, I still have a bit left. From their site, it appears people like it. I haven’t heard back from the gal who took my other 2oz pack.

Otherwise you can check out my cupboard. It’s pretty up to date with what I have on the shelf.

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
