This is a very nice dragonwell tea which I picked up at Leland Tea Company a few months ago. The leaves smell of spinach and it brews up to be a slightly nutty green tea. I much prefer the mellow taste of this dragonwell over something like Sencha (personal preference). Nothing spectacular but certainly great for every day/anytime drinking. Organic is definitely a bonus. If you’re ever in San Francisco you must stop by the Leland Tea Company which has an unpretentious atmosphere and a very friendly staff.
Finest of China’s green teas grown and hand-plucked near a spring outside Hang Zhou, China. Considered to be home to a particularly benevolent dragon. The tea grown in the spring’s vicinity has been praised for centuries by poets and emperors for its four unique qualities: singular leaf shape, jade color, delicious aroma and mellow chestnut flavor. It is said to cool and revive both body and spirit. Its jade green leaves create a brew that is clear and light.
