Another Sipdown from NofarS
This is a nice Dragonwell, which I was sipping on while thinly slicing homegrown beets. This will be my first time fermenting beets, so we’ll see how they turn out! They are in a brine with orange peel, ginger, & caraway. Back to the tea, I really enjoyed the first cup, a nice contrast to the black teas I’ve had so far today, but I’m sorry to say I really oversteeped the 2nd cup…does anybody know how to spell astringent? ;)

Your beets sound really good :) Hurray for fermented foods! Oh, and TEA!

I looooove beets. Yum!

We’ve been eating beets all summer, roasted, boiled & buttered, raw, etc. I love fermented foods, so I figured I’d give it a try! Here’s some pictures!

It’s easy to become distracted. Do you have a timer? I don’t know what I’d do without one. e.g.:

So pretty! I loooove fermented foods too. I always joke it’s my Korean heritage showing (but I’m adopted).

Decided to stick with the Tea Palace greens this morning! These are the only two left in my stash, although there are a couple I’d like to try now for winter. I can feel an order coming on!

I was careful with the time and temparature here, because I’ve had a couple of disasterous experiences with Dragonwell teas. My favourite to date is probably 52 Teas Smaug (also residing in my desk drawer at the moment), but I have to be in the mood for that. Today wasn’t the day, so plain it is.

Clearly I’ve been drinking the wrong Dragonwells in the past, because the liquor here is a very pale yellow-green. It smells very savoury, putting me in mind of green vegetables, or something along those lines. The leaves are lovely — flat and broad, and a fresh-looking medium green. So far, so impressed.

The taste is very subtle and delicate. I actually think I could leave this to brew a little longer, which I’ll try next time. I like to go careful to start with, but the scent suggests these have a lot more flavour to impart than I’m currently experiencing. This is light, delicate and slightly floral. There’s a definite green vegetable taste to the initial sip, which develops into an almost orchid like flavour in the aftertaste. It’s not overpowering, though. If anything, it’s actually one of the more refreshing green teas I’ve come across. I’m in the mood for savoury things today, because yesterday was a bit of a sugar overload for me. Perhaps this just really suits how I’m feeling at the moment, but if green teas can be this good I’d genuinely consider drinking a lot more of them. Maybe my tastes have changed? I don’t know. What I do know for this minute is that this is a really wonderful tea! Yum yum!

I’ve just added our Dragonwell to our selection of teas on Steepster and would be interested in your review. We have eleven China green teas including Mao Feng Green and Yunnan Green. Richard Grey’ Grey’s Teas

sipdown! I’m trying to offset all the black and oolongs i’m drinking today with a few other teas (and water!) lol today is a great day for not leaving the house…a)it means i’m close to the bathroom and b) my other half is sick and i am fighting whatever he has. So i’m drinking LOTS of fluid and resting…which means watching bad tv shows and also doing a bit of work.

This is a light tea, slightly floral but not enough to push it over to the category that i don’t like, Thanks for the sample terri!
