Oh wow… I have to hold on to my socks because they are about to fly off. This is some delicious Dragonwell.
I got it as a sample with my order couple of weeks ago and been waiting to try it. I used about half of the packet for 8 ounces of 80C water. The dry tea smelled fresh and vegetal and its color was beautifully green.
I steeped it for 2 minutes and was a little worried about the time because I usually steep my Dragonwell for 5 minutes… I did have a little less water though and visually this Dragonwell looked better quality than what I’m used to so I went along with it.
The resulting liquid was very pale green and … oh my… 2 minutes was plenty and the taste: divine. It was sweet, creamy, buttery, vegetal, rich, crisp, nutty and magic…. It was magic… So very tasty, I didn’t know Dragonwell can be this amazing! It almost reminded me a tad of milk oolong, there was this natural milkiness to it that drove me crazy with every sip.
Teavivre, what have you done? How in the world can I finish the rest of the regular Dragonwell that I have, knowing this type of creamy goodness exists? How can I look my old and trusted Dragonwell in the tin and say “I love you”?
I have to have a plan…. and this plan might be drinking a lot of Dragonwell in the near future to deplete my inventory and order this sock blowing, yummy excellence instead.
