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!

Tea lover. Former tea saleswoman extraordinaire. I don’t pretend to know everything about tea, but I know enough to sound fancy and cultured. I love trying new and odd teas. My favorite tea at the moment is Lapsang Souchong.
