THIS TEA NEVER FAILS! Even though, I bought an emergency stash of this tea in mid-winter (because I had run out) it’s as fresh and flavorful had I bought it in spring! This is my favorite go-to, must-have tea. No matter how many times a day, or over how many years, this tea has remained my gold standard for Dragon well. I don’t know how you do it Teavivre, but this Dragonwell never disappoints – Michelle
I don’t pretend to be an expert on such things, but I’ve very much enjoyed this tea. Sweet and floral, not at all bitter. The aroma is wonderful. Sometimes I open the container, just so I can smell it again. A very juicy-smelling tea. – Andrew
I don’t know what orchids should taste like but what I do know is that the taste is light and delicious. The tiny leaves are beautiful and the aroma of the dry leaves is incredibly sweet but the steeped tea is only lightly sweet and very smooth. No bitterness. Everything you could want is a premium green tea. I bought 500 grams of this fine tea. So fine it needs to be shared with friends. – Madonna
