I had one of those moments where I craved a dark oolong. I was dreaming about it last night. And my mood has honestly not been to great lately. So luckily Andrew provided me this sample, and damn, is it good. Sweet plum and shea butter. So fruity, so fragrant, so roasted, so nutty,and so much like nectar. I estimated the first steep again, and it was somewhere between 30-45 seconds, and the water was closer to 190 degrees at most. Man, it hit a sweet spot.
Now, I’m looking at the product description, and a temple is what I imagine as I swallow this down. I didn’t realize that this was a Dan Cong, (would this technically be a Phoenix Oolong?) and this one is one of the best that I’ve had. All the notes are balanced, and it is oh so sweet. Curse my expensive tastes.
