From Red Blossom Tea Company

In China, April 5th is Qing Ming – a day usually spent in remembrance of our ancestors. It also marks the eve of a two week long harvest period for some of Xihu’s best Dragonwell teas.

Our Reserve Dragonwell was hand gathered on the first day after Qing Ming, when the leaf buds have barely opened.

The resulting tea has a natural floral aroma and a buttery nuttiness that is distinctively Dragonwell – and a subtle sweetness that is distinctively early harvest.

Very nice. I seem to have bad luck with dragonwell. This is only the second one that I’ve even remotely enjoyed. Perhaps because of it’s popularity there’s a lot of low quality stuff on the market.
Regardless of my past experiences, this is fantastic green tea. Light, fresh and refreshingly sweet, with just a hint of darker flavors, nudging on the edges of your subconscious. Although I don’t get a lot of those flavors that I’ve found to be distinctively “dragonwell”. Maybe I’ll pick up on them as I drink this tea more.

Not entirely sure if this is the exact Dragonwell I’m drinking. I do know it is from Red Blossom.

I went to @VegaatLangton and asked for this tea without the water. The Batista looked at me funny then laughed. “You just want the tea bag? Do you want a cup?” She laughed again. The reason I asked for just the tea is because they sell this very tasty loose leaf tea from Red Blossom, but they only have one hot water source and it comes from the coffee machine. The hot water it produces is scorching hot, even above boiling temp. It would burn the delicate green tea and destroy it’s flavors. I gave her 2 bucks and took the handmade tea bag and went back to work.

I emptied the leaves from the bag into my infuser. It’s the perfect amount. I thought about keeping it in the tea bag, but there wasn’t much room for the leaves to take flight in. I’m on my second steep this morning and the flavors are much more than I would ever get if I had just ordered a cup of tea from this hole in the wall coffee shop.

The brews are lightly colored, but strongly grassy. Definitely has remembrance to a warm humid summer day, looking out on corn fields, while watching grasshoppers and gnats take over the golden sky as the sun sets in middle America.
