Tried the 2020 Spring version. Surprisingly mild – but an extremely well-balanced tea. I like Dan Cong oolongs in general, and this is one of the best I’ve tried. The scent is deep and full. The taste is somewhat mineral, with a bit of fruit and possibly milk. The texture is also very reminiscent of milk.

Flavors: Fruity, Milk, Mineral, Round , Smooth

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 100 OZ / 2957 ML

I like trying unique teas, especially those from areas of the world not known for tea production. It’s always something of a gamble and can lead to all kinds of surprises.

While I’m usually not into flavoured or scented teas, there are definitely exceptions. Hei cha which is not pu-erh tends to be my favourite category of tea, but I like some teas of all types. Smoky, creamy, and honey-like tastes generally appeal to me the most.

Top five teas I’ve had thus far (in no particular order):

Mekong Breakfast from Rakkasan Tea Company

2015 Gao Jia Shan “Cha Duo Tang” Wild Harvested Hunan Fu Brick Tea, from Yunnan Sourcing

Asahina Gyokuro “Hon Gyokuro” from Hojo Tea

Any good Lapsang Souchong

2018 Cha Yu Lin “Liu Bu Xi Village” Tian Jian Basket Tea from Yunnan Sourcing
