Thumbs up!"This tea is a characteristic dragon well for those looking for not even a hint of grass. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 'tis the season. "

For a company that only sells two different teas, one green and one black. This green better be spot on. Haye's Tea is a new company founded in April 2012, I'm not quite sure where they are located but their website does have some foreign characters on it, so I'm thinking they are somewhere other than the US, but I could be wrong.

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.
