987 Tasting Notes
Finally brewed this up at home where my variable temp kettle lives, so I can be sure I am doing it right! It is better than the last time I had it, but I think Dragonwell style is one of my least favorite forms of green tea. I’m sure this is a fine Dragonwell if you like dragonwells! I think it’s just too mineraly for me. I can deal with a mineral note along a sweet and floral oolong, but that is 90% what I get out of this one and not much else.
Oooh, cool vanilla/minty goodness! I really wasn’t sure about this flavor combo, thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending me some in a swap!
I am picky about my mint teas, but this one is nicely balanced with the vanilla, and the lavender is in there somewhere, but it is not overpowering at all. Very nicely blended and I could sure use the energy boost from the guayusa this afternoon! I still prefer the Good Morning Sunshine flavor of guayusa, but this is a nice change of pace :)
