This tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and is part of the Artisan Comfort Gourmet Tea Collection. The flavor was sweet and buttery with a subtle toastiness that reminded me of freshly popped popcorn. This tea was very smooth but a touch of vegetal astringency gave a dry finish to each sip. As far as tea bags go, this is one of the best dragonwells I’ve had. A lot of companies will use substandard tea that isn’t properly pan fired but it was obvious that this tea is the real deal. I hardly ever get around to drinking it anymore but dragonwell is still of my absolutely favorite green teas. I’m so happy that I have a stock of these at work to get me through the chilly fall days to come.
