yezidragonwellmasterThis is my first sample from Yezi, but I can tell already they're the kind of company I live to buy tea from. Their website is beautiful and helpful, and the notes on this tea include information on the specific farmer who grows this leaf. It's those kinds of facts that make me okay with a higher price tag for a tea because obviously it's not hiding behind fancy words or frilly packaging.

This is the higher of two grades of Dragonwell available from the site, and the leaves a broad, flat, and grassy green. I put 5 grams in my 8 ounce glass teapot and brew at 176° for thirty seconds. I get a pale milky yellow liquor with a creamy, vegetal scent.

The flavour is mildly creamy and vegetal. It's delicate yet rich with a beautiful brothy texture. It's completely smooth with no bitterness or astringency. I steep again for a minute this time, and I'm disappointed to find the cup is already extremely mild, even for a tea as delicate as a Dragonwell. I drag out a reluctant third steep

It's an honest to goodness quality tea from what looks like a quality company. My only complaint is that, while the first steep is amazing, it goes downhill shockingly quickly. The latter steeps aren't bad by any means, but they aren't remarkable. I'm definitely interested to try more from Yezi Tea if I get the chance, though. I like their style.
