I passed by the store today, but I only had a few minutes. The sales associate was really knowledgeable! I intended to stay for 2 min, but ended up there atleast ten… making me late *sighs
Anyhow, he let me try a sample of the Grade A dragonwell, and oh boy it was GOOD!! there are very few green teas that will make me swoon, but I will sing this tea’s praises any day.
I think it was the pan-fried part that was so tasty. Roasted teas usually appeal to me. Too bad it was so darn expensive, sheesh!
This nutty, roasty, mild, incredibly smooth brew(among the many others they have) could cause me serious financial woes. I hope there is no such thing as tea rehab, or else I could be in trouble.
oh and the best part, the normal scratchy sensation I get from so many green teas? well I felt the mildest suggestion of it after a few sips, but it was maybe 5% of the scratchiness I get in many jasmine/greens. One day I’ll retire and open up a tea shop somewhere in the city… or maybe just befriend a tea shop owner. Yes, that is the better idea I think!
EDIT: After thinking about it, I really shouldn’t even think about buying a tea like this without a proper gaiwan, but then I have no room in my place to keep one. Perhaps when I move I can have a corner dedicated to tea and a gaiwan (before I meet that tea shop owner, of course)


Actually they say green teas are better brewed using glass, so don’t worry about gaiwan (http://goo.gl/fImBx #2 under hints and I swear I read the same thing in some other places :))

As far as the pricing goes, the better the grade of tea is, the more resteepable it’s supposed to be, so you get your value back, but I think it’s definitely an indulgence tea rather than every day brew. I would ask the guy next time to point you to less expensive green teas that would satisfy your Dragonwell craving. There must be something for you with a great price/value combination.


Glass huh? I have a big pot, but it’s meant for flowering tea. I’ve been meaning to purchase a smaller one… Thanks for the tip Daniil :)
—When I finally manage to cut down on my current supply, I’m going back for a serious tasting session!


Well mainly the idea is to see leaves dance, if the glass is high enough it’s really gorgeous. Dragonwell does that especially, leaves constantly go from the bottom of the vessel to the top while standing up straight. It’s a good thing good Dragonwell is hard to oversteep, it’s easy to get carried away watching leaves boogie.


I can imagine that would be fun to watch.I sometimes watch them steep in my tea master, which is plastic… but I’m sure it would be much crisper in a glass.
I have so many teas at home that should only be enjoyed when one has time… but who has that anymore?! multiple steeps? I just grab n go! It’s a shame, I really enjoy those ones to.


I’d assume it’s about the same glass/plastic, except that glass keeps temperature better maybe.
Haha, I try to contain myself from buying a ton of tea, having a small cupboard helps battling my addiction :)
