The dry leaves smell like sawdust (in a good way!) with grassy undertones. There is a slight sheen and the gold leaves have a beautiful iridescent shine. The balls are tightly woven and contain leaves that are uniform, both in the roll and actual leaves. The smell is fresh and sharp! The smell is a formal invitation to take a sip and one that is hard to resist!
The liquor is a deep chocolate, but thin with an amber glow. There is a VERY light cedar aroma and that quintessential “tea” smell that we all know and love! It has a somewhat cedar taste with a maple finish and begs to be drank.
I love dragon pear teas and this is no exception. I could drink this often and in mass quantities. It is a great quality tea and has a great taste!
This tea is showing currently unavailable, but I found some on BizRate:
