Everything about this tea is delicate; wonderful subtle flavors melded together in perfect harmony. The liquor is a very pale green and just the sight of it is calming. This stuff is very nutty, maybe a little more nutty than Teavivre’s “Premium grade” dragon well. It’s very silky and light and right after the liquid leaves your tongue as you swallow, you get a tingly, sparkling sweetness. Nutty, a little vegetal, sweet, calming and refreshing. A good dragonwell really centers you, and this one is exquisite.

Today is Memorial Day here in Israel. It is a very serious day for us. Military service is mandatory, and there is hardly anyone here that hasn’t been touched somehow by the destruction that is war.

It is a sad day today – so I need a happy tea.

I’ve not had much green tea lately. For a long time now I’ve been having, almost exclusively, blacks, unflavored with milk, and rooibos. Just the mood I’ve been in.

This morning, while rummaging through my sample drawer, I found a sample of this that I had forgotten I’d ordered. I remembered how when I had first discovered tea my favorite pick-me-up tea was TGY oolong.
So thinking that maybe a green will also pick me up, I brewed a whole pot.

Yes. This is it. This tea is perfect.

Such a gentle and light Dragon Well. I’ve read that other’s found it nutty. Maybe my taste buds differ, because I’m not tasting nutty, only grassy, vegetal green goodness. It’s delicateness makes me think of something pure and innocent. And that is exactly what I need right now.

I can’t believe I never reviewed this Long Jing from the spring 2012 season. They are currently sold out, but I will order more when spring 2013 becomes available. These are my notes from previous tastings. A winner! Delicate, light, fresh, yet plenty of flavor and with no bitterness whatsoever. Overall effect was relaxed and refreshing. When it was cool it was still very good. More expensive than their organic superfine dragonwell long jing. Both were very nice.

Lovely. Nutty, vegetal but not overly so, mildly grassy, lovely smell, slightly sweet. Everything a Dragonwell should be.
