NOTE: It is currently 2022 and this tea is from 2016. I’ve had Mrs. Li’s Dragonwell before and I know it is good but because this has been sitting for a while in my Aunt’s cupboard… Still a few trichomes on the package and the leaf is still nice and flat with barely any broken leaves but the aroma is flat. Seems like a clean cupboard. The color is sad. A light brown/olive green pale… kinda. There are some really weird sweet notes in the initial steep. Slight caramel, burnt sugar. The taste is… weir. It is not a dragonwell. At. All. Slight varnish. Slight…. burnt something. Maybe woodsy. Almost tastes like it went through another baking process. But the baking process didn’t really do it justice.

Allergies: Almonds and Dairy.
Don’t like: Sugar, artificial flavoring.

Preferably pure tea. But I think blending is its own art form and when done well you can find some amazing flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on but if I had to choose it would go in this order Green, Black, Oolong, White, Dark, and Yellow. (Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1 )
