I brewed this tea with about 2 teaspoons for 2 minutes in water about 150 F. The leaves are your classic flat wok-pressed leaves with a yellow green color. This tea is probably one of the best dragon wells I've had. It is so smooth and has that perfect roasted nut taste of hazelnuts or chestnuts with a subtle floral bouquet that lingers on the tongue along with a long lasting nutty finish.
As I drink this tea a story is brought forth of a man with ragged clothes that takes a trek to the top of this high mountain to reach something greater than himself. As he walks he gathers chestnuts from along the trail and picks orchids as he moves further along. Once at the top he brings his harvest to where the tea leaves grow and brews a hardy mountain man tea of dragon well, nuts, and orchids and contemplates the life below him. A soothing cup from the long journey he makes his way back down to reality in an renewed fashion and shares what he has discovered.
There are many things in life to be shared, this tea is one of them.
