Oh, man, this stuff is amazing! If you’ve had the Organic Dian Hong from Dragon Tea House, this tastes exactly like that but… white. The same deep almost savory thick malty sweetness that just coats your mouth with every sip. It’s amazing. Also bit of a cinnamon type spice and wheaty malt, and there’s some fruity brightness hiding out in there too. A bit cantaloupe-esque, but not quite.
These types of leaves are a bit difficult to measure, so I just dropped a bit into my little teapot until it was about 1/3 full. Steeped 15s and 20s so far with almost boiling water. Perfect! I imagine this is a difficult one to mess up.
The stock is looking a bit low on the website. Even though I’ve only had one cup I’m seriously considering ordering more right away. This is one of the best teas I’ve ever had.
