101 Tasting Notes
not beening a a fan of green tea, i think this is Dragonwell is not bad. it does not have a strong grassy flavor. I also only steeped it it for 45 seconds b/c i do not was a strong flavor. I would recommend it to people like me that do not really like green teas
in the bag it smells like trident strawberry gum. steeped it smells like hot apple cider.
The taste is very interesting. I taste the trident strawberry gum but the after taste leaves your mouth with a mint flavor. Not mint flavoring but a mint leaf, like a mojito.
It is not bad. Not my favorite.
Hot – nice light smooth fruity flavor. not much more to say about it since it was discontinued.
Iced – my wife was not happy about this being discontinued. We had to go and restock b/c she asked me to make her it Iced every day. She is not a tea drinking but she loved this. We normally just had it with no sugar and it was good. but the last time we added a little sugar and it was great. the sugar made all of the favors pop.
I think it is important to try a tea couple of times before you comment on it. For me this tea is a prefect example of why i say this.
As i have said before, green tea is not my favorite. When i first started drinking this tea i did not like it at all b/c i felt it was way to grassy for me. i made it a couple more times and could not finish the cup. Each time making it differently so that i could try to get it to good for me. It was way to grassy for me.
Well i did. It is still not my favorite tea but it is okay. It is grassy. It is a smooth grassy taste. If you are a green taste drinker then you will probably like this tea.
this has a wet grass smell. I think this is okay. I am not a huge green tea fan. I do not really care for the grassy taste But this Green Pekoe does not have a strong grass taste. it does not really have mush of a flavor. I think this is good for someone who does not really like green tea or need a stepping stone to green tea.
this was my first pu-erh. I saw it at Whole Foods, and figured i would give it a try. i liked it. it is earthy. I like that it as a strong flavor. It is nice to have them as little discs. When i am at work (or at home) and i do not want to measure out a teaspoon of tea, it is nice to put this out and know you have the correct amount of tea.
