Teavivre Organic Superfine Dragon Well

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: jade green, flat
Ingredients: green tea
Steep time: 1 minute
Water Temperature: 185 degrees
Preparation Method: glass test tube steeper
Liquor: very pale, greenish

I tend to not be much of a green tea person but there is nothing like the smell of Dragonwell brewing. With good quality green tea subtlety is key. At first, I was hardly able to taste anything at all. After each sip, I noticed a lingering sweetness. This eventually developed into complex notes of asparagus and chestnuts. There was even a hint of a floral aroma. This became even more prominent as the tea cooled. There was no bitterness and hardly any astringency. You all know that +TeaVivre is one of my go-to companies when it comes to Chinese teas. Earlier this year I reviewed their Organic Nonpareil She Qian Dragon Well. I almost wish that I had tried them in the reverse order. While this tea was very good, that one was a higher grade that set the bar very high. That being said, this version is also much less expensive. If you have a taste for Long Jing but a limited tea budget, this would make a much better choice.
