3 Tasting Notes
My green tea of choice. Absolutely amazing.
The aroma is a earthy, sea weed like smell. However it’s not too overpowering. It’s just right. As it goes down, the seaweed flavor is in full effect but its not screaming or kicking but simply making its presence known on the palate.
My only complain is that, for my own preference, I have to add a sweetener because it is be bitter plain. But that’s just me, this is a fantastic tea.
Flavors: Earth, Seaweed, Tannic
I had the opportunity to travel to china a few years ago and I had to pick up authentic dragon well right where they process it, I loved it.
I went to Teavana and said what the heck, let me go see how this compares and I must say they are of similar quality. I put perhaps two pinches worth of tea and just left it there to steep(that’s how I was taught to drink dragon well)
Aroma- mellow, relaxation inducing, earthy.
Taste – (no sweetener added ). Again mellow, nothing really jumps out. All flavors are real toned and coalesce to form this buttery, mellow, earthy, slightly roasted flavor.
Aftertaste- a bit dry but that’s expected.
I would recommend this tea. As an avid tea drinker, I’ve encountered countless overpowering-tannic green teas with a bitter after taste, this is not the case with this tea.
