This tea surprised me to it’s overall tastiness and quality. The dry leaf is molasses coated in fragrance. Not quite molasses, but they smell really nice and sweet. The leaves are long, slender and hand rolled, with an average length of about 1 1/2". There are several around 2" in length, plus the extra bonus of plenteous tippy golden leaves in the bag.

The liquid is medium brown and very smooth, with very low astringency. This Dan Cong has less of the stronger toasted notes, but an overall balance of roasted sweetness. Its very similar to walking in the warm breeze of late Indian summer day in the middle of Autumn. It’s refreshing and invigorating.

I’m pretty certain this stash will not last long. I can’t leave it along! :)

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
