With Dragonwell remaining among my favorite green tea offerings, I gladly nominated myself to sample Teasatia's Super Dragonwell. Thie dry leaves are of a dark green color and flat and broad in shape, all pretty much what I expect to see when I am drinking Dragonwell. There's nothing remarkable here about the appearance of the leaves, but then again there's very little about dragonwell leaves that would be worth commenting on. The scent of the dry leaves is mild but more vegetal in nature than I had expected.
I brewed these leaves using my standard green tea approach: 180-degree water and a three minute infusion. The tea was a pale green color which again, is what I expect from a Dragonwell tea. Because I had brewed a large pot, I kept the remainder of the brewed tea on my Breville One-Touch teamaker's "keep warm" setting. The tea that remained in the pot turned a darker shade of almost brown. I have noticed that many green teas will do this with changes in temperature (e.g. if you put them over ice) or expose them to prolonged heating. The color change appeared to have no effect other than visual on the quality of the tea.
In all, I found this to be an excellent example of a good Dragonwell offering. The overall flavor profile was mild and not too intense or vegetal. The tea presented a wonderful balance of sweet and nutty notes, with a grainy cereal-like finish that I just loved. I found myself craving the next sip before I had even really finished the previous one. I would classify this as "downright tasty", which I know is a very technical term in the tea industry.
If you are looking for a high-quality dragonwell with a sweet and pleasing flavor profile, you need not look any further than Teasatia's Super Dragonwell.
