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.
