Rich and famous

Watered by rain from a local dragon, brewed by a Chinese emperor for his ailing mother, and honoured as the Qing Dynasty’s Imperial tea, Dragonwell is surrounded by lore. Imitators abound, but our Dragonwell is the real thing, grown and processed in China’s West Lake Region. The leaves are hand plucked and meticulously pressed in a hot wok over and over until the ideal temperature, shape, and flavour are reached. Perfection in every cup. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Green tea from West Lake Region, Hangzhou area, Zhejiang province, China.

I have been drinking Dragonwell for years now, I have decided to stick with this tea. The reason I have sticked with this tea for years is because it has a roasted flavor and is one of the aspects I like about Dragonwell. I wouldn’t recommend drinking this tea after 6pm because it does have caffeine and it can interfere with your sleep. If you love green tea this is a tea for you.

I think I liked this one more than I like a lot of senchas (Sencha Ashikubo not withstanding). It was very drinkable, not too bitter… I’m still getting a taste for straight greens, but this one is definitely under consideration to be an addition to my collection in that sense.

It smells exactly like miso soup? Well.. thats mouthwatering, actually.

Ok. The tea has cooled down, and I have tasted it…. It does taste a little like miso! And then like slightly buttered, not-white-but-not-quite-whole-grain toast. There is a toasted nutty taste for sure. I quite like it! I would love a stronger flavour though, but I think I may have underleafed. Mmm. this tea is very food-like, super digging it. Would buy again.

Edit: 2nd steep @ 82C for 4minutes ish is more miso and more butter. YESSS

David’s Dragonwell is my favourite of quite a few Dragonwells I’ve had the pleasure of trying. It’s sunny and sweet, not smoky, and almost honey-like. Very forgiving of longer brew times and rebrews. Delicious.

A really nice green tea to give you that little afternoon boost. It’s a pretty grassy tea with lots of vegatale notes. Not bitter in the slightest if you don’t oversteep it.

Dragonwell is an extremely strong green tea! It is a somewhat high quality tea. A lot of work went into making this tea taste the way it does.

It tastes rustic, and kind of woody, but in a good way! The green tea taste is still there though, and that’s the best part.

I feel like I should be on a retreat in the mountains in China, practising ancient Buddhist meditation to a beautiful sunrise! Yes, that is the journey that this tea takes my senses on when I drink it! It feels so good, and comforting; it’s incredibly delicious!

This is my standard green tea that I drink almost on a daily basis. Reminds me of the Dragonwell I used to buy in Shanghai but the only difference is that they would keep their tea in a freezer. Smells and looks slightly similar to alfalfa grass . Strong but pleasant taste and can be steeped multiple times. If you’re trying to find a new tea similar to Japanese green tea then look elsewhere.

Another Chinese green tea.

English style steeping:

Steep 1: vegetal and slightly nutty, very pleasant.

Steep 2: Not too much flavour left in the leaves sadly.

One of my favorite green teas, has a hint of citrus in the scent to me, but very light and mild. Refreshing tea that you can drink often and doesn’t grow tiresome.
