Tea Review Tuesday - A Review of Mark T. Wendell Tea Company's Dragonwell Green Tea

A Review of Mark T. Wendell Tea Company's Dragonwell Green Tea

Opening the package, the dry leaves smell grassy and have a perky sweetness about them that I am eager to try (too much time spent drinking roasted and musty green teas has drawn me from teas like this). Two teaspoons of leaves, two cups of water, and three minutes later, I had a pale green brew with a much deeper aroma than the dry leaf had. Deeper, yet still as sweet, the grassy notes linger as well.

Deliciously smooth. The grassy flavor does not overwhelm, as some greens are apt to do. For such a lightly flavored tea, the brew seems to carry a moderate amount of thickness to the mouthfeel. However, even those light flavors are complex by themselves, making each sip a lingering pleasure, if left to settle on the tongue.

The sweetness and delicacy of the brew leave one with a very refreshed feeling, and it is a very enjoyable tea to drink. I gladly give it a 77 out of 100 on my personal enjoyment scale and would certainly recommend it.
