From Zhena's Gypsy Tea

The traditional method of making Dragon Well is what really sets this sought-after tea apart. Each individual tea bud is hand-pressed and shaped in a wok to achieve the perfect level of roasting. Gracious and enticing sweet-edged aromas and multi-layered with warm, creamy, soft plant notes filled out with teasing notes of fresh plucked peach.

Ingredients: Prized and rare organic Lung Ching “Dragon Well” Spring green tea leaves with crisp, sweet infusion.

This is a nice Dragon Well. It has a very pleasant sweetness to it – it is not overpowering. It has a vegetative quality to it that is somewhat of a mix between grassy and lightly buttered, roasted veggies. A nice balance.

Not a bad green. It didn’t stand out as awesome or awful, but it was a decent cup. I had this bagged, and I wish that it had better steeping instructions on the packet.

This is a very light tea with a chestnut aroma to it. The taste is vegetal with a light sweetness to it. I drink more black teas than green and I still liked it. A nice relaxing tea.

I’m not a huge fan of Chinese green teas, but I must admit, this tea is very good for what it is. Furthermore, Zhena’s Gypsy Teas are very good quality no matter what form or line you purchase…another brand I highly recommend.

Aroma: More vegetal than grassy, more asparagus than spinach.

Taste: Same as aroma. More vegetal than grassy, more asparagus than spinach with a little “sparkle” due to the tannins, but not tart, just lively.

Aftertaste: Actually, I’m contradictory compared to taste…as it settles on the palate, it mellows and softens to more of a soft spinach and the tannins mellow as well; still lively but loses some of it’s “zing” factor. Another nice tea to enjoy throughout the day and into the early evening.

Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is another brand I highly recommend; not all flavors will appeal to each person’s palate, however, the quality and freshness of this brands teas [all teas of this brand] are top-notch, exceptional and sublime.
