An afternoon gongfu session with this one. I haven’t loved a lot of dancongs I’ve had in the past, but I’ve been getting more into darker oolongs lately so I am excited to try this one.
The first few steeps were light and sweet, fruity and lightly floral. Definitely a delicate, refined flavor on this one. There is a light roastiness, like flavor of baked fruit. Later steeps lost the sweetness and became more orchid-like, though it is still subtle. Overall this was very pleasant and I enjoyed my session a lot, although I still think I don’t know enough about these to really appreciate the subtleties here.
