drank Dragonwell by Min Shan En
661 tasting notes

Okay, looking for my first cup of tea this morning. For me it must be green and it must be really good. I rarely reach for a sample for my first cup just on the off chance it’s not good. I did this morning. Pulled out this one from Liquid Proust. I’ve never had a bad dragonwell so I thought let’s give it a try.

LOVED this dragonwell. The nutty chestnut notes would seem to change in the mouth and release a fruity note along with it. Every cup was heaven. Loved this so much I did a second infusion (something I rarely do with greens) but alas, it’s not the same. 2nd cup is good but no intense chestnut notes or fruity notes at all. In fact the 2nd cup is more typical of some other dragonwells I’ve had with a bit of nuttiness , smooth, & a bit buttery. After getting over my initial disappointment that it wasn’t like the first cup, I really enjoyed the 2nd cup too.

Still, I am giving this a high rating. It’s a rare dragonwell.

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
