From Teavana

This legendary green tea is a top ten tea in China hailing from the Zhejiang Province. Follow the famed crooked river on your trip through Zheijian and steep in carefully handmade flat jade green leaves that create a mellow-sweet taste with chestnut overtones. Natural sweetness from the jade green leaf establishes a complex palette in this renowed sweet nutty tea. IMPERIAL RESERVE

Lightly sweet with a smooth texture and hint of lingering chestnut

I purchased the Dragonwell when I began to build up my “straight teas” collection. Boy, am I glad I chose this! I love multiple infusion teas for my work days, and this is one that lasted all day- about 8 infusions. It’s got a smooth mellowness that I can drink with or without honey (or rock sugar)- a slightly “green,” calming flavor. I loved that the liquid was free of the floating pieces that my herbal teas produce; everything in the cup settled prettily at the bottom, reminding me of the pebbles and plants visible through clean, clear river water. During my recent cold, I added a little ginger tea and found the pairing wonderful. A soothing beverage for sure.

I was very pleased with this tea. My birthday recently passed, and I was given a number of teas from different companies. I decided to try this one first. The name in and of itself sounded good, and the leaves produced an even more awesome brew. The leaves smelled sweet, and earthy (but not too earthy!). For a long time now, I’ve been waiting for a green tea like this one. The brew was light-colored; a yellow-green. And the smell was almost identical to that of the leaves. As for the taste: it was not earthy at all. It had a natural sweetness to it, and a very great “green tea” flavour. It was the perfect thing to drink this evening. I’m so glad I received this tea as a gift, and I will most certainly buy it from Teavana before I’m even done with it.

For a green, not bad. I only make it when my husband really wants some green tea.

I’m new to loose leaf teas and dragon well is some of the first green teas I’ve tried.

It is very good, has a roasted smell with some veggie aroma as well. Great tasting. 2nd steep was even better than the first.
