Dong Pian 2012 was a very good year and made my top 3. Sweet full bodied mouth feel, never bitter and brewed at 195F 45-90 seconds decanted from gaiwan imparts a golden cloudy liquor so damn intoxicating you can “smell” sweet candy cane 2 seats away. Really no marketing hyperbole from the company’s description. One of their truly great offerings worth every cent. I do short multiple steeps so as to extract every drop of goodness until the tasteless dregs. The only unfortunate thing is they have gone through 2 shipments and once the tin goes powder that’s all folks. Srsly, if you’re visiting them, just smell the lid and you’ll know what I mean.
