While I’m an avid fan of oolong teas, I had never tried a Dan Cong until last night. I’d always been kind of intimidated by their cult following and all of the single bush vs. multiple bush talk, so I just ended up avoiding them.

I had some rare free time last night so I decided to go to Dobra and try something new. I’d tried every oolong on their menu except for the Feng Huang Dan Cong, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

I was very impressed. The medium roasting gave it a wonderful aroma and full-flavor, while floral and fruit notes (definitely apricot as was mentioned, along with a bit of grapefruit citrus) dominated the aftertaste. Strangely, it reminded me a bit of the Traditional Dong Ding offered by Floating Leaves.

Only complaint would be that it has a bit more astringency than I usually like in an oolong, so it probably wouldn’t be a regular long-session tea for me. That said, it’s bursting with flavor and will definitely be a go-to tea over the next few months.

I bet it must be the apricot Dancong. Dancong tea liquid will be more astrigent than any thoer Oolong teas if steep it for a little bit long. You can try next time on short infusion time; probably the astrigency will be short.
Dancong is also my favorite; When I am busy at work, I would like to brew Dancong in a causal way(in a tea maker) then still get good flavor and taste. Love it!!!!~~~~

jk, you’re right—short infusion time and slightly lower water temperature does cut down on the bitterness quite a bit. Thanks!

Superb Oolong, tasted like a Roasted Jade Oolong if you can imagine that. Medium roast. First steep was outstanding, 2nd steep – wish it was like the first. 3rd, let’s do another pot…

Smooth oolong… I tend to brew a lot of this in my 21oz personaliTEA pot by Adagio, maybe about 2 minutes. Typically oolongs don’t like really hot water but I use boiling water for this one, and rinse the pot first. 2 minutes. Not particularly good for a second infusion but I’ve done it occasionally since it’s a bit on the expensive side. Similar to Da Hong Pao (same source) but I think Da Hong Pao is a bit deeper of a flavour and, to me, better.

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

On this brutally humid day, I am revisiting an old favorite. The more I drink this tea, the more I pick up flavors reminiscent of Belgian beer. A whole mouthfeel with a crisp finish that lingers pleasantly. As this tea ages, the roast is becoming sweeter.
