Thumbs up!"This tea's flavor is crisp and nutty with an underlying sweetness. Although the tea is not very heavy-bodied, it is a satisfying brew. "

weareteadragonwellThe folks at WeAreTea.com offer tea the simple way, with no frills, bells and whistles, or, as they say it, "chintz". They simply offer good quality tea, and a fairly decent selection at that. Today I sampled their Dragon Well tea. If I had to make the choice, I would choose Dragon Well as my favorite green tea. However, some Dragon Well offerings I've had in the past are really sub-par, and now that I've tasted some really good ones, it's really difficult for me to convince myself to drink anything less. Luckily for me, this tea met my excectations. The WeAreTea.com site notes that this tea won two gold stars at the 2009 Great Taste Awards, and truthfully, it's not hard to see why. This tea's flavor is crisp and nutty with an underlying sweetness. Although the tea is not very heavy-bodied, it is a satisfying brew. Judging on appearance, these leaves were prepared very well. They are flattened and very broad (probably among the fattest that I have seen for a Dragon Well), and displaying assorted shades of green. This tea held up well to a second infusion. As odd as this may sound, I found the second infusion to taste ever-so-slightly like corn flakes. Now that I reflect back on it, I think its more that the tea just has a general grain-like flavor element to it. Whatever it was, I sure liked it, and threw back my cup in record time. At the time that I prepared this sample, I was really craving a good tea, and this Dragon Well hit the spot.
