Just got the 2017 version of this green tea, and it is just as good as the previous years offerings. Super clean, crisp, with hints of grass, wet earth, butter, and nuts.
This next time I brew this, I’m going to use a little less leaves, as my normal 7 grams in my 32 ounce Bodum Assam teapot is a little much, and I’d like a brighter, cleaner, crisper finish. More leaves gives a bit of a thicker, almost creamy feel. Still, amazing, and still one of my favorite green teas out there.
Someday, I need to pull the trigger and get one of Red Blossom’s super high quality Dragonwell selections. I just need to get brave to drop $60-$95 for 2 ounces of leaves.
Flavors: Butter, Earth, Grass, Nutty
