The dry leaves look like flattened yellow-green color raffia. They have scents of yellow squash, mung bean, rocks, and a hint of lemon.
Brewed, the leaves smell very much like mung beans. Very clear tan liquid. The liquor is very Earthy and again, the domant essence is cooked beans.
I always drink green teas with lunch and this one is nice and somewhat neutral-tasting. Tastes like my favorite Chinese restaurant’s green tea.

From the Steepster Select box, January 2014


Second steeping, I added way less water. I might have given too much water to the first one. Now the liquor is yellow-green color and has a nicer roasty aroma and flavor. There is a definite almond accent with collard green notes. Astringency cleanses my palette.

Dragonwell is my favourite type of green tea. That said, I was pretty disappointed in this one. The smell of the dry leaves barely hit me at all. The liquor was like white tea, which I now notice from the photo is what was expected, and the aroma was lackluster. What makes Dragonwell my favourite is the nutty hints, and this one was seriously lacking that. Dare I say it, but it almost tasted stale. Alas.
