From Bellocq Tea Atelier

Harvested in early spring from Lion’s Peak or Shi Feng (the most sought after area for Dragonwell), this pan-roasted green tea is famous for its smooth, vegetal, roasted chestnut flavor. It has a rich, sweet finish and a pale green liquor that reminds one of the mist-covered mountains from which it hails, making this dragonwell a particularly delightful cup.

Lion’s Peak Dragonwell is a Bellocq Limited Tea. It has been purchased in a small quantity and is available only from our tea atelier and online.

Origin: Lion’s Peak, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China – March 26th, 2015, Pre-Qingming

In all fairness, i don’t love green teas. But i also don’t typically hate them either. This was a sample that was included in my order from Bellocq – generous as i’ve probably got enough here for 5/6 “normal” cups. For those who enjoy green teas, this is likely a very nice dragonwell. I’m not sure that i can understand why this is a limited dragonwell or if it’d be worth the price (42$/2oz) to me to pick it up, but it’s tasty. There’s a vegetal note here but not overwhelmingly so as it blends with the sweetness in the tea to become less in your face. I am enjoying this cup but i’ll see if i can share the generous samples with others who might not otherwise pick this up given the price.
