Its OK"While I can't readily identify it or even describe it, I do wish it was not there, or at least reduced in its intensity. This tea also has a bitter kick to it. I was not wholly impressed by this tea, and I really am not sure I would drink another cup of this."

mightleafgreendragonMighty Leaf's Organic Green Dragon is packaged in attractive, biodegradable silken sachets with ornate stitching. The tea leaves contained inside are visible through the sachet mesh and are impressively large for the contents of a tea bag. By appearance alone, these leaves appear far superior to the tea dust that often lurks within tea bags. As directed, I brewed the tea for three minutes, which resulted in a tannish-colored liquid with a distinct grainy aroma. The flavor of this tea was not very comparable to other dragonwell teas, and nor was it entirely enjoyable. I would classify this as a light-bodied tea, although the flavor was still pretty strong. This is a fairly vegetal green tea with an underlying and unexpected burnt-like flavor. My main issue with this tea is the grimace-inducing mystery element that seemed to persist in the flavor. While I can't readily identify it or even describe it, I do wish it was not there, or at least reduced in its intensity. This tea also has a bitter kick to it. I was not wholly impressed by this tea, and I really am not sure I would drink another cup of this. It's not that it was undrinkable, it's just that I have a plethora of more enjoyable teas available to me. This tea does get points for having quality leaves packaged in convenient sachets, but still this is not a green tea that will appeal to the masses. On a last note, this tea is a bit expensive (~$10 for 15 pouches), and I am not convinced that the tea merits the price.
