My first thought was that this Dragon Well isn’t as pretty as some others that I’ve had in the past: the leaves seem smaller and not as yellowy as I’m used to. They’re a deeper green when dry, but when the tea is infused the physical difference of the leaves don’t seem to make much difference. That said, this went bitter on me the first time I brewed it: I normally brew Dragon Well for 3 minutes, but for this one, 2 to 2.5 seems to be long enough.
The liquor is very fresh-smelling and vegetal: I like my teas a little grassy, so for me this tea was great, but if you aren’t a fan of that sort of taste then this isn’t the tea for you. The tea itself tasted much like you would expect Dragon Well to taste, if a little more astringent. Over all, I can see this tea becoming a regular for me :)
