Thank you to CharlotteZero for sending me this tea to try. It is actually my first verdant tea to try, I picked it up since I have never tried Dancong Black so it got me curious. I was surprised when I looked at tea leaves – it looked very dried compared to most of tea I see. When I smelled it, I sensed very smokey and roasty smell, which reminded me of Keemun. Since I am somewhat picky when it comes to smokey tea, I got worried – however it was unnecessary! I actually ended up leaving it steep longer than I wanted but it didn’t leave me any bitterness in flavor. It was very mind, and there was unique mild smokey flavor. Overall, I liked it! :)

Bio

I love tea! :)

I love good flavored tea, mostly floral or fruity or sweet/dessert flavored tea works for me. My favorite brand so far are mariage freres, ronnefeldt, teagschwendner, TWG (not twinings), lupicia, silverpot so I guess Japanese or European brand works for me. I find most of american brand are mellow and weak in flavors.

However, recently, my interested moved from flavored tea to classic/chinese tea. I like good oolong tea (I hate bad oolong tea!!) such as si ji chun or ti kuan yin. I love good milky oolong too! Jin Jun Mei or dong fang meiren are another good one however it’s hard to find good quality ones. (maybe I’m being picky)

If you have any good tea to swap, feel free to pm me! I have lots of tea that are not listed in my cupboard as well. I love swapping so that I can get to try new tea :D

P.S. I love collecting tea wares (mostly teacups, but open to t-cozy and other tea accessories) Feel free to pm me if you have something you want to swap! :)
