Tea Review: Premium Dragonwell (Teavivre)

Premium Dragonwell
Type: Green
Origin: China, Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou City, Xihu District
Product Description: Dragon Well green tea, or “Long Jing”, is commonly regarded as one of China's top ten teas, and is often served to visiting heads of state. Apart from its delightfully sweet taste, with none of the bitterness that sometimes characterizes other green teas, Xihu Long Jing's significant difference from other green teas is the smooth flat appearance of the tea leaves. TeaVivre have selected a great example of this premium Xihu Long Jing tea.

Whenever you feel upset or restless, Long Jing Tea is the perfect drink to relax and calm you.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a mineral green and slightly nutty aroma.

The pale golden green infusion has an aroma that is buttery, nutty, and boldly green.  The taste is mildly astringent with toasty green and lightly nutty notes and a long sweet finish.

While I tend to prefer the slightly more mellow results with a 2 minute steeping, the bold green and somewhat more astringent taste when steeped at 3 minutes is invigorating.  

This tea was purchased by me.
