From Halcyon Tea

Dragonwell Early Harvest is a time-honored classic from the Westlake region of Zhejiang Province. The distinctive blade-shaped leaves yield a golden-green liquor with a sweet, slightly nutty flavor and a buttery finish. One of the quintessential Chinese green teas.

Time: 1 minute (multiple infusions)

Temp: 175° Amount: 1 tbs / 5 oz. water

Prepare In: gaiwan or tall glass

3rd Steep: 1 tbs, 5.5 oz

Cup: Very Light, much more yellow
Scent: much lighter as well, a little grassy
Flavor: Getting ever so slightly astringent, less of the nutty flavors and a little more strongly green. Still very ‘buttery’.

Final thoughts: I don’t think this tea is going to go much further than the 3rd steep. Perhaps if I had put 5 oz of water in each time, I might’ve been able to brew a 4th.
