Easily the most fragrant dry green tea leaf I’ve ever encountered, the color of this Dragon Well is beautiful, ranging from light to medium green. The leaves are irregular. They are not uniform at all, but such things are not important to me. Opening the package, I was amazed to find what seemed like nectar mixed with an almost melon-y (honeydew?) sweetness sitting atop your usual Dragon Well notes.

Brewed, the pale green soup doesn’t disappoint. All of the flavors promised in the scent of the dry leaves have found their way into the cup, which is remarkable since I was a little gun-shy and under-steeped this. Don’t ask me what I was on, but my notes read “a vegetal taste follows the sweetness like a bride’s father who is reluctant to give away his daughter.” He did give her away, though, and faded to the background as the tea cooled.

That lovely sweetness lingers noticeably in the nose for a good half-hour after the cup’s finished. This is truly a delicious tea. Then again, you’d have to be pretty sure of yourself to second-guess David Lee Hoffman.

I’m getting this ta because of you review. I’ve had similar experience buying from him but never crossed my mind to try this one.
