Mighty Leaf Organic Green Dragon Tea -- 15 Tea Bags
Best way to steep Green Dragon Tea
I am posting this because one of the reviewers experienced that the tea was bitter. I, personally, find this tea to be the most pleasant tasting green tea on the market -- not bitter, and not sour.
The secret is in the steeping. These tea bags do not skimp on tea. Also, they are full-strength strips of tea leaf, not ground like other brands.
Set your timer for *three minutes* (longer may make it too strong). Then remove the tea bag and save it. If you like it that strength, great; if not, adjust the timing next time to make it stronger or weaker.
I later get a second cup out of the same tea bag. The second time around, I do not remove the tea bag as soon. I keep it in the cup and remove it after a while, when I am satisfied with the strength.
I hope this helps.

LOVE THE PACKAGING, but it is a little bitter.
I drink green tea all the time and was not too sold on this one in particular. The tea bags themselves are ADORABLE, but there is a bitterness to this tea that I am not fond of. I have other might leaf teas and like them, just not this one :(

Best green tea that I have tasted!
Mighty Leaf Green Dragon Tea is the best green tea that I have tasted. It does not get bitter or sour as it steeps. Because of the cloth pouch, it does not have the undesirable flavor that paper pouches impart. I would say that it is naturally sweet, but that is not to imply a sugary or honey sweetness, but, rather, a clear, clean taste with no bitterness.
This is a whole leaf tea rather than an almost powdered tea. That also makes a significant taste difference.
An important bonus is that this Green Dragon Tea is organic. Who knows what pesticides we are ingesting when we drink non-organic teas.
