The dry leaves released a great roasty aroma when I opened the bag. I couldn't wait but to steep a cup of this great looking green tea in my glass gaiwan.

I cooked water and let it cool down for 2 minute. I can't really say what temperature it is, I tend to steep tea more based on my 'feeling'. And I like it that way. I guess it should be around 80C. After waiting for 3 minutes poured the tea in pitcher.

The flavour is pretty deep for a green tea. It's nutty, but not bitter. Maybe a weakness is that I feel it's slightly dry below my tongue. I think this could be avoided by steeping it slightly shorter. It's still really nice though. I think I would recommend a 2 minute steep for the first steep.

I applied 4 grams of leaves and could get 5 steepings out of a 120g gaiwan.

Not the best Dragon Well I had, but definitely the best value. I can't wait to try the more premium dragon well longjing that this vendor stocks.

The aroma of the leaves is very rich and vegetal, like asparagus or even green bean casserole. There is also a hint of chestnut, an even smaller hint of pepper, and sweetness as an afterthought. This tea smells delicious and is making me more than a little hungry.

The taste is very smooth and mild, I am amazed how clean it tastes very evocative of fresh rain water. This tea has absolutely no bitterness, just vegetal and green with a mix of chestnut.
