This surprisingly fragrant green from my pal David Lee Hoffman at The Phoenix Collection has a bit of a tartness on the nose, and the fuzzy stiff-grassyness you see in its raw form unfurls beautifully as the tea steeps. This makes the Golden Dragon one of the prettier teas to drink with people who see it in my cup asking what it is I’m drinking… The Golden Dragon drinks about as well as any green I’ve ever had with a fine even finish. Good for at least four steepings in a 16 oz tea tumbler.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

Ah, I’m a geek with a family and a pretty cool job…I run jobs for hire on the side and I like my drink.
