This tea is a prime example of “all looks over taste” when it comes to tea. I got the Spring 2022 harvest of this tea from my YS order, and while this tea has beautiful golden leaves/buds, a beautiful, potent and rich aroma, and a decent liquor, everything else was the epitome of a downhill fall. Flavour was almost non-existent, least flavourful dianhong I’ve ever had. The texture was smooth but uninteresting, the character of this tea is just gone, the discussion about finish & aftertaste is out the window, and the steep longevity relatively is quite bad too. There was a slight buzzy and warming cha-qi, but that’s about it. Not a good tea.
