organicteadragonwellOrganic4Tea.com’s website, although clearly not written by a native English-speaker, still offers a variety of information about their organic tea products. They state: “The most important value we hold is that we promote healthy life and renew our organic certifications from IMO and BCS by following USDA rules yearly”. Organic Dragonwell was the first type of tea I sampled from this new-to-me company. The leaves had the appearance of a high-quality Dragonwell: broad, flat, and grassy green. The dry blend had a fairly strong grassy aroma, much stronger than I am used to observing in Dragonwell teas. I prepared my tea infusing a generous teaspoon of leaves in about eight ounces of sub-boiling water for three minutes. I had really been craving a good Dragonwell tea lately, so I was very excited to start sampling this tea. As with the aroma of this tea, however, I found this particular Dragonwell to be a little to vegetal for my likings. In general, my favorite things about Dragonwell are the subtle flavors of grass and chestnuts and the underlying sweetness that really is hard to find in other varieties of green tea. This particular Dragonwell offering, however, was really, really green in its flavor, and by that I mean that it was too reminiscent of spinach or broth. I really couldn’t pick up on any chestnut flavor and I didn’t notice a sweetness that I was expecting. I don’t think this is a bad green tea, but it isn’t my favorite Dragonwell offering. Those used to the subtle and easy-drinking qualities of Dragonwell may be surprised at the relatively robust and brothy qualities that this tea delivers. This is a good quality tea that gets extra points for being organic, but this tea won’t be for everybody. One last note: after spending quite a bit of time on their website, it’s still not entirely clear to me how exactly how one would go about ordering any tea products from Organic4tea.comhe website and furthermore I could not find any information on the prices.
