Another tea from my recent order Jing Tea Shop. Spring 2012
I like this tea. its not as complex as Mi Lan Dancong. But i shouldn’t even compare them.
It seems like its medium roast. dont think this tea is old. thru reading TeaDB i found it gets better after a year
Anyway, this tea is yummy. its rich with dried fruits with cinnamon( very nice ,not overwhelming). Gongfu method 6g 100ml gaiwan 200F
Many short steeps of 5/10/15sec.
I cant say its my fav because its the only one i tried. i would like to compare it to other Rou Gui.
I’m so impressed with this tea. Unfortunately due to my inexperience with Dancong
I probably won’t be able to do the proper review.
I’ll try to do what I can. It’s incredible. It’s like fruit cocktail (. I’m not even able to pinpoint every one). Lychee, mango, pineapple, maybe cherry. Some raw nuts. Around 4th steep some bitterness creeped. But nothing offensive. And loooong sweet aftertaste lingering in my mouth.
Gongfu 6g 100ml 195F
Many 5/10/15 secs
Highly recommended, thanks apt!
I was smitten today. This tea is like nothing I tried in my life.
4g 100ml 195F
Leaves are long. Maybe like an inch on average and some longer
Smells intoxicating. I’m very new to this type of tea so it’s hard to describe all the notes. Overall it’s like drinking semi sweet champaign .
So glad I ordered from JTS. Thank you apt for recommending
I got my order today. I was so excited because I got 3 tea packages after “starvation” mode.
This tea. It’s very complex,changing from one steep to another.
4g 100 ml gaiwan 205F
The leaves are midnight black, very thin and very long like Daddy long legs. Scale to the rescue.
First steep was pale yellow, longan or grapes, juicy and some raw nuts,maybe cashew?
Second steep was totally different. Smelled like brownie, tasted like brownie with some faint cherry note
Later steeps were more citrusy, like grapefruit, longan came back with more cherry note pronounced. Some steeps were kinda floral in Darjeeling way.
This tea was quite an experience. Rich, multifaceted , satisfying
Thank you apt for suggesting me Jing Tea Shop. I’m very excited to try new teas.

I love this tea. It’s not too fragrant unlike other dancongs cough cough VERDANT HUANG ZHI XIANG but it’s naturally fragrant and sweet. It’s not the best dancong out there but it’s the best for the price. Definitely ordering a ton of this next time I order from Jing
brewed this wrong in the beginning, but I got it right it was pretty good. I got a strong sweet cinnamon fragrance, like a cinnamon roll with a little icing, which translated over to the taste. the roast was lighter than I am used to, which may have helped the fragrance. overall this is a good value and good tea, but not mindblowing in any way.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Roasted, Sugarcane, Sweet
western brewed this.
this is a roasted white tea, which is something I’ve never heard of. it sounded good and is inexpensive so 50g made it into my jing tea shop order.
I like this better than fuding bai mu dan. this is a complex tea, with a heavy body and lingering aftertaste. it isn’t as sweet up front, but the typical sugary finish of bai mu dan presents itself in the aftertaste. it is as good as any white tea I’ve had, maybe even better, and at half the price!
can’t wait to try this cold brewed and gongfu
Flavors: Asparagus, Fruity, Heavy, Powdered sugar, Sugarcane
My first Lion Mt dragonwell and I am stunned. Literally zero bitterness, all sweetness and the most complex flavor profile of any green tea, it changed in my mouth like a good oolong. The taste started out like sweet peas then slightly creamy then crisp almost lemon/lime like. Later steepings revealed a asparagus after taste that was superb. Just when I thought green tea was boring and 1 dimensional the tea that was described to me as the “chinese gyokuro” came along. This is truly my new favorite tea and i am already anxious that it is only obtainable late april early may yearly.
Flavors: Asparagus, Peas
Tea of the morning I’ve unearthed from my stash pile…
I am happy that I slept through the night and I don’t remember getting up once! 9 weeks post injury, this is a major achievement for me. I credit the massage I got yesterday and sleeping with a teddy bear under my arm, lol. Let’s hope this is a trend that continues.
This is a delicious chinese red tea I described in my original tasting note, It’s still so good. I love the mellowness of this tea. Even steeping for 3 minutes Western style like I did this morning, I am detecting no bitterness at all, just very mellow and rich chocolate and caramel notes. Perhaps it’s time to think about placing another order with Jing, maybe when the 2014 teas are out.
This is not a sipdown. I realized I wanted something smokey with my dinner. It just seemed like it would add a nice dimension to the meal. Plus, I have this amazing box of teas from my swap with TeaExplorer, & I was dying to try one of them! So I’m trying this one! And before I say anything else, I want to say, “Thank you!”.
It’s quite tasty! Right now, I feel like the level of smoke is perfect on this cup. With some lapsangs, you have the BBQ thing going on, and the only thing you really get is lots of smoke. When I was a kid, we BBQed a lot, & no matter where I stood, the smoke was always in my face. My dad used to say, “Smoke follows Beauty.” :\
This is not one of THOSE teas. Sure, there’s smoke, & it’s at a realistic level, but there’s also a rich sweetness beneath that smoke, & I am truly loving this cup right now.
