Now that work is done, I’m going to go play some Civilization VI but before I get to gaming for relaxation and fun, I’ll drop a little note on this tea. My motto is work hard, play three times harder. hehe

This Dragon Ball weighed 8g, wrapped tightly in white paper with a bow. I read that it was shaped with cotton instead of saran wrap. It’s an Autumn 2017 harvest. The liquor is a pretty deep reddish brown color. By the third infusion, the tight Dragonball had broken up completely. It is floral but not perfumey at all (good hehe), has honey and molasses aroma and taste, some malt, sweet potato, and brown sugar. It’s a medium bodied tea but it has a pretty thick mouthfeel and a very sweet after-taste. It’s a nice on-the-go type of treat… Small, compact, good flavor.

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. I don’t like artificial sweeteners.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
