98 Tasting Notes
Alright, so this is a little odd to me but maybe to no one else but this tea smells like strawberry jam or preserves. This is before and after steeping, it’s not something I mind it’s just throwing me off a little.
That being said it has a very balances flavor that is a little sweet like jam or preserves. I could see myself using this as a base for a blend or just as an everyday sort of table tea.
This is the second of two Dragonwell samples I was sent by Teavivre.
This one was a little sweeter then the first one I tried and seemed to have a more balanced flavor profile. The only negative thing I can think to say about this is that I wasn’t able to get as many steeps out of the leaves as I did with the other one. Though the steeps I did get were very good.
So…. I’m a little in love with this tea right now. Here is why.
There is a nice sweetness to this tea, which is typical of this type, but still I love it.
There is also a nice grassy/floral note that really helps to balance out the sweetness of the tea.
It resteeps very well. I lost count of the times I was able to reuse this.
Finally, it looks really cool and calming while it steeps.
In close, I love Dragonwell and this is one I like.
So, this is my own blend and I might be a little biased…. Scratch that, I am biased.
The look of this tea is just beautiful, a wonderful mix of colors. The taste is a balance between the sweetness of the silver needle and the oatmeal taste of the camomile. This does exactly as it should and relaxes the hell out of you. Everyone should drink this.
Yes, I am being conceited.
