Thunder Dragon Green

An exclusive from In Pursuit of Tea! This green tea, grown in Samcholing, Bhutan, has never before been exported. The tea fields are located at the summer palace of the second king, and were originally planted in the 1950s. A collective of 26 women now operate the 43-acre farm, hand-picking, pan-firing and rolling the small leaves into a simple twisted shape.

The bright, sweet flavor is reminiscent of a Chinese green tea, with vegetal notes of coriander and lemon peel and a delicate floral aroma. Unlike many green teas, the leaves can stand up to multiple steepings—try four or five. Enjoy the taste of a new tradition!

Country: Bhutan

My new favorite green tea

I have always been a fan of Japanese green tea for it's gentle sweetness that somehow works with the bitter notes. Comparatively, this is a Chinese green tea that was very surprising to my taste buds. It's gentle, soft and sweet--not bitter at all. I drink it all the time. It's delicious hot or iced.

Delicious and smooth

It's been a while since I've had real green tea; too often resorting to tea bags. They just don't compare to the real thing. This, right here, is the real thing. It's incredibly cathartic and delicious. I used a simple OXO metal strainer, 5g at 3mins with 175F water.

Great quality Tea. Not bitter at all. I had always been buying my tea at the grocery store for the most part and never really enjoyed drinking green Tea but just did because I knew it was good for you. Now I do enjoy drinking this tea and I know it’s of much higher quality/better health benefits.

At last, a green tea worth drinking!

Green tea and I have had a rough relationship but no more...this is so good! If your doctor wants you to drink green tea, this is the one you want!

Delish!

Very tasty green tea, and you can tell there's a difference from the regular stuff you get at the store and these leaves. I was so fascinated at how light and delicate the tea leaves looked after I had steeped them. This must be real green tea...I'm not sure what I have been buying at the stores before now. :)
