From Tea Habitat

This tea is harvested from a single tree which has entered many national and internal tea competitions and won numerous prizes since the 70’s, often the first prize-Gold Medalist winner.

Aroma of this tea is sweet orchid floral. Orchid is an illusive term to describe aroma. Orchid is the most praised flower in Chinese culture, there are many species of orchid which aren’t related in botanical family. Even within the orchid botanical family, there are over 50,000 varietals, some are fragrant, some aren’t, and some are smelly. In this case, I can’t define a particular flower to describe the aroma of this tea. It’s beautiful without a doubt, not over powering with a soothing nature.

Flavor is aromatic as well that lingers in your mouth, you may find it in your breath soon after drinking. Sweet honey taste lasts many infusions.

Burying my nose in this packet of tea struck me with a strong whiff of real orchid scent. It wasn’t overpowering, but delightful and sweet. I brewed up 3g in a 90ml pot for short bursts, and the tea can’t be described with anything but “amazing.” The liquor is a warm gold, with a distinct silky feel to it that I was surprised to detect in such a clear tea. At first, the honey notes bowled me over, but with careful steeping this eventually shifts to airy florals. It is very easy to brew this one too light and get no fragrance, or too long and go too bitter, but dedication is so so rewarding. You can seriously sit all day with this tea, and not be disappointed.

Nice to get some insight on this one. I’ve been eying Imen’s offerings since I first heard of her a couple months ago. Dancongs captivate me, and I’m on a quest for the best out there. I’d like to try one of the comprehensive samplers from Tea Habitat when I have some extra money to do so.

BTW, you have the best profile pic of anyone on here!
