This tea really does smell a little like chocolate. It has the classic Dragon Well aroma with a hint of chocolate that I just love. When I figured out how to brew it, this became my favorite tea. I put lots of tea in my gaiwan and use very low temperature water (probably 140°), steeping the tea for only a minute or two. This tea gives me several infusions.
I have sampled lots of Dragon Well, up to ones that cost $200. per pound. The more expensive Dragon Wells obviously have the wonderful Dragon Well flavor with no bitterness. What I love about this Organic Dragon Well is that it also can be brewed with no bitterness and has that classic Dragon Well flavor. I find it to be an incredible value and drink it every day.
