Hooray, TheLastDodo sent me a nice pouch of this, and I bet it will tide me through till the spring harvest, so I won’t be dragonwell-less after all :)

So this looks a bit different from the dragonwells I’ve tried before. The leaves are REALLY long and they’re a dark jade green. The taste, though it still predominantly has that chicken broth note that dragonwell is known for, also has a slight floral aspect that you don’t normally see in this type of tea.

I think Teavivre’s buttery approach to dragonwell is still my favorite, but this is a very nice one, glad I got to try it :)

I agree, I love buttery dragonwells too. The one I am having right now from Silk Road is a little buttery, but I’m having it with purple potato and brown rice ramen, and the broth is a little spicy, so I think it is throwing off some of the notes I’m tasting. Though it is a very clean green tea, and it is cutting into the spice of the soup nicely.

Wow, sounds like some nice soup :)

It is! It’s from Lotus Foods. My grocery store carries it, but it is more of a brand you wood find in a healthy food store, tbh.
