"Dragon Tears" isn't really a kind of tea, but this is a folded full leaf tea from Fujian province in China. It is a really popular tea in America, partly because it has the creamy, buttery, sweet flavor of green tea but with the lack of "grassy" tastes.

The tea leaves are rolled up into little pellets and pan fired. The leaves unfurl as they steep, and can be successfully steeped up to 3 times before being discarded. There are downy buds in addition to just tea leaves, which gives a soft mouthfeel, buttery, creamy, sweetness, hints of fruit. This in addition to the mellow, roasty sweetness of the tea leaves.

All in all it is a fantastic everyday green tea, or a great gateway into the world of green tea for those who don't think they enjoy the taste of green teas.

Tasting Notes: Full bodied, slightly vegetal, soft mouthfeel, roasty sweetness

Steep: 1.5 tsp of tea for 8oz water. Water temperature: 175. Steep time 3 minutes. Sweetener: Optional

Approximately 14 tsp in a 1 ounce package.
