If you want a consistently good (not excellent) tea, look elsewhere.
SMITH TX
I know that buying bulk tea can be something of a lottery, but after this frightening batch, I'm not sure I'm willing to take the risk anymore.
emhob
As for the taste--this tea does not taste like Dragonwell, which I'd describe as slightly nutty flavored.

Flavor Name: DragonwellSize Name: 8 Ounces
I have been drinking tea for some decades, and keeping notes to remind myself of favorites. Green teas usually benefit from steeping at cooler temperatures, and this Boston Tea Dragon Well is no exception. I suggest using water of 185 degrees or cooler.

My experience with this Dragonwell was disappointing. The tea was flat and anemic. Not only was there no complexity or freshness to the aroma, the leaves had little fragrance at all.

The bag I received had no packing or expiration dates. But, the lack of aroma was the first clue that the tea was long past its peak. Older tea does not become rancid, but taste and aroma diminish as packaged tea ages. For best results, search for teas with a packing date of less than six or eight months previous.

Trying to obtain more flavor from the tea, I tried longer brewing times and even higher temperatures. More tannins were released, giving some bitterness, but flavor did not improve.

BOTTOM LINE: I personally will be cautious of buying any Boston Tea product without learning packaging/expiration dates. Trying this Dragonwell is an inexpensive gamble, and perhaps you will receive fresher inventory than I did. However, the package I received truly deserves a rating of two stars or less.

BETTER OPTIONS: I enjoy Peet's Lung Ching Dragonwell, which comes in a steel canister. And, sometimes Asian markets can yield unusual pleasures. I recently picked up Tian Hu Shan Dragon Well for just a few dollars. It was reasonably good, and certainly more flavorful than this Boston Tea product when I did a taste comparison. Good luck in your tea tastings.

This product does not look, smell, or taste like dragonwell. It has a strong grassy taste, without the smoothness and aroma of dragonwell. Fine if you just want some green tea, but definitely skip this if you are looking for real dragonwell experience.

The Dragonwell tea leaves were brown, unlike other brands of Dragonwell tea I've purchased, and the flavor was not good. I will not buy this tea again.

Extremely disappointing. Frankly, I think plain old Lipton tea is smoother and less bitter. When brewed, I could hardly recognize it as green tea. It tasted more like a very poor Earl Gray.

Flavor Name: DragonwellSize Name: 8 Ounces Verified Purchase
Pros:
Large leaves/pieces of leaves.
The tea is green.
Low price.
Low levels of dust.
Tea is sealed in a foil-lined, heavy, paper bag, good for keeping oxidizing UV rays out.

Cons:
The tea is too dark, even for a pan-fried, Chinese, green tea. Almost oolong colored.
It's bitter.
There are stems as well as leaves.

I bought this tea for its leaf size, price, and catechin content. I'm pleased with this tea on at least the first two accounts. My glass infuser kept on getting clogged with the cheap Sencha I was using; no inconvenience now. As for the taste--this tea does not taste like Dragonwell, which I'd describe as slightly nutty flavored. I got a superb, whole-leaf Dragonwell at Whole Foods; the only problem was that for 2 oz. the cost was about the same as for these 8 oz.

I drink green tea for the catechin content, so I was somewhat concerned to see the tea coming out darker than expected after steeping. If this is from fermentation and oxidation, then more of the catechins would have degraded than would have otherwise happened. It was also bitter, which might be good if the bitterness was from a higher catechin content, but it could also be from more caffeine. I don't want more caffeine. And I know how to prepare this tea, and have successfully done so many times before with other brands.

I would definitely consider buying this, but just be aware that "Finest Grade" may be hyperbole.

-------------
Update:

After drinking this tea daily (~ 2 rounded tsp., 5 infusions--it still has flavor), I started getting chronic headaches. A dull pain in the left side of my head at multiple times during the day.

I opened the package and there is a seaweed smell. Lots of branches, almost no tea taste at all. Wonder what plant was it made of.

We have had luck with Boston Tea's Dragonwell in the past (this is our third time buying the 8 oz. package), but this was undrinkable. It has a very potent, almost chemical taste (and smell). I am familiar with loose leaf tea (and even brewed this batch along some of my other Dragonwell's just to make sure I wasn't off the mark). I know that buying bulk tea can be something of a lottery, but after this frightening batch, I'm not sure I'm willing to take the risk anymore. It's a shame because I enjoyed being able to drink a lot of Dragonwell for the price.

It's tea all right, maybe even not that bad of a tea but it's definitively doesn't have that peculiar dragonwell taste AT ALL.
