This is the first Dachi Tea i’ve ever tried and I must say, it was pretty damn good. The flavor was mellow in a calming way, but rich enough to keep the taste buds wanting more. It reminded me of a good milk oolong, but it wasn’t as pungent.
One thing I really liked about this tea is that it was one of the most calming oolongs i’ve ever had. Because of it’s mellowness, it was soothing and relaxing. This tea lasted for over a dozen steeps as well, which is always a plus for an oolong.
When I was done with my session, I sorted out the wet leaf pile. I was surprised to see how large of a leaf/stem you get from this oolong. I even found an entire tea tree stem with all of its leafs intact in my vessel! It was very clear that this tea wasn’t processed in any way and looked like it came straight from nature – something of which i’ve never seen in an oolong.
Here’s a photo I took of my session!!
