Burying my nose in this packet of tea struck me with a strong whiff of real orchid scent. It wasn’t overpowering, but delightful and sweet. I brewed up 3g in a 90ml pot for short bursts, and the tea can’t be described with anything but “amazing.” The liquor is a warm gold, with a distinct silky feel to it that I was surprised to detect in such a clear tea. At first, the honey notes bowled me over, but with careful steeping this eventually shifts to airy florals. It is very easy to brew this one too light and get no fragrance, or too long and go too bitter, but dedication is so so rewarding. You can seriously sit all day with this tea, and not be disappointed.

Nice to get some insight on this one. I’ve been eying Imen’s offerings since I first heard of her a couple months ago. Dancongs captivate me, and I’m on a quest for the best out there. I’d like to try one of the comprehensive samplers from Tea Habitat when I have some extra money to do so.

BTW, you have the best profile pic of anyone on here!
