This tea has an almost roasted flavor with some nice playful green notes, robust and zingy. There are hints of roasted corn and zucchini and maybe some toasted pecan, really small hints of green bean. There’s a little sweetness to the tea as well. The flavor is long-lasting and really lingers on the tongue with a bit of hui gan. Honestly, this is the first Dragon Well tea I can recall really enjoying. The last one I had was really intense and tasted like fried chicken. I still long for the day when I can try the fabled Xi Hu Long Jing. If I were a lion in China, Lion Mountain is where I’d probably hang out and drink tea, anyway. ;3
The repeat infusions on this tea had very nice flavor as well, more robust than I usually get with green teas.
