I’ve had mixed experiences with Peet’s Lung Ching Dragonwell, but when I get it right, it’s absolutely some of my favorite green tea. The problem is, it’s a bit fickle- steeped for a minute too long, it becomes bitter, steeped for a minute too short, it’s a bit watery. Similarly, temperature has an extremely variable effect on the tea. In that sense, it can be a bit of a disappointment. With that being said, when you get it right it’s absolutely flavorgasmic, almost buttery, with a lingering sweetness… mmm. I’m going to pour another cup.
