I loved this tea although I'm not usually crazy about green. It avoided the planty, health-food associations I usually make with green teas. Instead, there was a lovely, rather robust fragrance, almost floral. This is probably the one green that I will stock in my tea cupboard.

This was a very gentle green tea. Delicate aroma with a hint of toastiness; less grassiness than other dragonwells I've tried. This particular tea is extremely smooth and low in both bitterness and astringency even when I brewed it with water hotter than recommended...I also found it can be brewed much longer than Rishi recommends, resulting in a stronger cup that is still very enjoyable. The leaf is also very light and takes up much space; I think the recommendation of 1 teaspoon per cup is on the low side, I enjoyed using more leaf as well. Also, I find that the flavor of this tea tends to sink to the bottom of the cup.

My favorite dragon well that I've tried yet, although among Rishi's green teas I still prefer Jade Cloud, which surprised me in that it is considerably less expensive.
