From Goldfish Tea

Dragon Well (literal translation of the Chinese “Long Jing”) is regarded as China’s “national tea”, high on the list of “Top 10” teas. Dragon Well comes from the town of Hangzhou in China’s Zhejiang Province. The tea trees grow on the many hills surrounding the famous West Lake (Xi Hu). This region is considered to have the most ideal natural conditions for growing tea plants, including warm temperature, humidity, adequate rainfall, and rich and slightly acidic soil.

The flat and smooth pale green tea leaves produce a clear green liquor with a subtle fragrance. This tea provides a truly memorable taste, both nutty and sweet, with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste.

Getting through the other samples from Goldfish Tea. This morning I tried the Dragon Well they sent me. It’s pretty good. Not what I would call exceptional Dragon Well. I have to admit that my taste for Dragon Well tea was spoiled by one of my tea friends, who kindly prepared for me a sample of way-too-expensive-to-import Dragon Well that one of his contacts in China had sent him. That was purportedly “ideal” Dragon Well. This one is decent, but doesn’t even hold a candle to that Dragon Well. So maybe the comparison isn’t completely fair.

Don’t get me wrong, this one is not bad at all. It’s actually been pleasant and tasty enough for me to steep 5 or 6 times. Apparently, Goldfish Tea has two different grades of Dragon Well (choice and premium). The sample package they sent me does not list which grade this one is, so unfortunately I can’t provide any insight on their grade offerings. Ah well… in summary, it was worth drinking, and made for a pleasant morning. But nothing particularly interesting or exceptional about it.
