I'm fairly new to dragon well green, but I'd have to say Haye's Tea chose well. I brewed their dragon well with about 1 tsp. of leaves for 1.5 minutes. The raw leaves had a slight floral, green bean scent to them with an almost coffee smell. Dragon Well is known for having a nice chestnut taste with little to no grassy taste. Haye's Dragon Well had virtually no grassy taste to it at all in my opinion. This tea is what I think of when it comes to a characteristic dragon well, but then again I am a dragon well newbie. The first sip had a nice toasty cinnamon taste, sweet with almonds. The scent of the tea was like roasted nuts.
For my second brew, I steeped for 2 minutes. I tried my best to find any other subtle tastes in the second brew, but it really tasted very similar to the first brew.
This tea is a characteristic dragon well for those looking for not even a hint of grass. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
