hm, I haven’t had a Dan Cong in a while. This one is a fairly fruity one. Dry leaves smell of peach pits and lychee. It is very strong and perfume like. The wet leaf aroma has various notes including nail polish, beeswax, honey, wood, pumpkin and fermented fruits.

There is a strong woody flavour in the taste as well. It is complemented by a mix of sweet and bitter ones and a sour finish. In the first half of the session, there is barely any astringency. I find the taste is very well balanced. There is an interesting nuttiness as well, maybe closest to walnuts. The aftertaste is cooling and shows flavours of dry grass, honey, perfume, malt and a lager like bitterness.

The liquor rolls down the tongue very easily, but leaves a sharp, biting, and slightly numbing feeling behind. It is a very subtly interesting mouthfeel.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
