Your FAQs, Answered
For Imperial Dragonwell
Although both Chinese and Japanese Green Teas offer immune boosting and health-giving properties, they are inherently different in terms of their palate and character. Chinese Green Tea has slightly twisted tea leaves, typically presenting a light, clean and refreshing palate, while Japanese Green Teas have flat folded leaves that often omit a nori-like, vegetal palate.
Green tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the palate it presents.
When over steeped, and prepared at the incorrect temperature, green tea releases tannins that cause the tea to taste bitter. To avoid this bitterness, green teas should be steeped between 30 seconds and 1 minute at a temperature of 180° F or 82° C.
All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.

Love this tea!
I was gifted some Dragonwell tea from China several years ago and loved it so much but had waffled over buying it myself because of the price tag. This one from Tealeaves is a great value and the flavor is superb!
I am a fan of the more subtle flavors of a green tea. Some tend to lean into being a little bitter, or a little more intense in the flavor profile. Yet this green tea hits the sweet spot of being the adequate amount of flavorful while being a rich and traditional green tea. There's no hiding the fact that this is now my favorite loose leaf tea, and if you are a fan of the nice soothing richness of a green tea that does not attack your senses or leave a sting at the end, this is one you should definitely try.
