This is a mystery tea I recieved in my order (I bought 4 mystery teas at $1 per sampler pouch). I’m still exploring green teas, and so far I’ve had the most luck with dragon well because it tends to be sweet and nutty (like soybean). This particular one was very fresh (just picked in spring 2017), and so I’m excited to open it now. Even though I’ve got so many caffeinated teas already open, I figure fresh dragon well is going to taste best if consumed soon.
350 mL, 4g leaf, 2 minute steep (two steeps at 2 minutes each), hottish water (~80 deg. C)
While this was more vegetable than I hoped (baby spinach, bok choy), the classic dragonwell nutty profile (soybean) if there too. A slight sweetness is present, but nothing like the stonefruit notes I’ve tasted in other dragonwells. This leans towards vegetal and nutty but not fruity.
Flavors: Bok Choy, Nutty, Soybean, Spinach, Sweet, Vegetal
