The aroma is amazing. The leaves smell grassy and when I added water this great toasty aroma was added. The flavor was a bit of a let down. I was expecting that same toasty element but it just wasn't there. It's very light in flavor, which has the grassy, earthiness but is completely missing the toast.
A nice, solid green tea. Very flavorful and not bitter.
This is an excellent tea. Really vegetal and fresh.
An excellent, high quality green tea. I received it as a gift a while ago and loved it.
One of my favorite greens, this has a smooth, nutty flavor, but it's very even. It's a rare treat.
This is a solid dragonwell. I've had better, but not often. Very mellow and vegetal. The roasted undertones come out more in this dragonwell than others, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. My one complaint is that it only holds up for about 3 brewings. Typically dragonwell can last 6 or 7 (in my experience).
This is definitely a special occasion tea, especially for those who don't necessarily want something sweet.
Dragonwell is good, it has a dry finish and a very smooth and good quality green tea. However, I can't afford bulk dragonwell, so I have to look elsewhere, but it's still a good indulgence tea
