drank Dragonwell by thepuriTea
120 tasting notes

Yesterday was too busy to log with Mothers Day and a few work hours mixed in. Major deadline Tuesday, so extra duty as needed… So, this morning I reached for a sample of this, my first experience with Dragonwell. I really like it. It is solid green in flavor, somewhere between sencha and Ti Quan Yin to me. The leaves are distinctly different in shape than other teas. They look like little propellers. It is very drinkable, each sip drawing you back to the cup as the aftertaste lingers on the palate. I think an oversteep would be bitter and astringent, it seems to have hints of those qualities at a short steep. The color is more yellow than green, but shades of green are there. I am going to max the score on this one to help the average. I don’t understand rating a tea low, if you don’t care for that type in the first place. I think this deserves higher than it has been given. If I don’t care for a particular type of tea, I don’t rate it.
Just saying. :)
And…happy Monday everyone!
