This is last years tea but OMG, it’s still pretty darned amazing. It helps that my sample was vacuum sealed. The taste was incredibly light and sweet with crazy complexity. I’m getting fruits, florals and even a bit of creaminess.

I don’t believe they’re selling it this season. Shame, since I really like their other offerings.

I actually haven’t tried Da Yu Ling yet, most of the Taiwanese vendors I buy from don’t sell it, and when I did have an opportunity (Origin) I didn’t want to spend that much when I already dropped a ton of dough on other teas.

Backlog:

An absolutely LOVELY oolong! The aroma of the dry leaf is herbal with floral tones, the brewed tea is more delicate with a vegetal note and hints of flower.

Delicate and light but still full-flavored. Sweet and very creamy. Floral with light vegetal notes. Later infusions develop the vegetative notes, and the creamy notes begin to subside, but it is still very delicious and well worth the effort to resteep.
