Probably a bit too subtle for me…

Looks like a cross between Da Wu Ye and sweeter Dancongs but neither sweetness not floral bitterness are very bright. The liquid is also a very slight yellow color.

Certainly not something I’d want to have on my shelf in any meaningful quantities. Dancongs are a big hit or a big miss for me it seems. Either I love then, or I couldn’t care.

This review is for the 2014 version. This tea has a sweet aftertaste, and a unique aroma. No dryness could be felt when brewed right. Its taste evolves nicely over steepings, and in the 2nd steep I got a really nice thick mouthfeel from it. This tea lasts for many steepings (at least 8 steepings the way I brew it).

Brewing parameters: I used about 4.5g of leaves in 125ml gaiwan. 95c for the 1st and 2nd steepings, and 90c for the rest steepings. brewing times: rinse/15s/15s/15s/20s/25s/35s and so on..

Flavors: Fruity
