Having tasted another Dan Cong tea in the past, I set myself up to taste something similar to that: smoky, strong, bitter. This tea absolutely blew me away.
The first taste is slightly bitter, but then the end and aftertaste are sweet and floral. There’s a lovely lingering orchid flavor that I did not expect.
This tea also stands up to multiple steepings. I’ve done 4 and it’s still fairly strong.
Overall I would highly recommend this tea and it’s reasonably priced as well!
