13 Tasting Notes
i’m very sad because i broken my first yixing pot that i had dedicated to black (laoshan black in particular).
if someone know how to fix it ….
so today i decided to try out this tea,
i don’t like green or green oloong tea but i read so wonderfoul things about this
so i decided to give it a try.
i brewed it occidental style in glass teapot 5 gr for one mug of water
3 min step 95 degree
1 step i recognize immediatly that this is a quality tea… have a strong green taste
sort of vegetables light infuse. this don’t drive me crazy…
2 step better more sweet more buttery less vegetables.i recognize the saffron mentioned
in description. Astringent.
3 step more or less like the 2 a little bit more of astringency
finally this is a good tea absolutely,
i like it more than the other tea of this kind i ever tried.
but…. this is not my type of tea.
this is the reason i don’t wanna rate it.
I fell the complexity but i can’t judge something i don’t understand at all.
BTW i want try it also in gaywan.
gonfu is more “respectful” for this tea, hoping tea pay me back. :)
something in the middle of
dan cong and red chinese tea
very fruity for a red chinese tea and very strong for a dan cong.
but i love this mix
i come back at home from a the first bbq of the season …. and i had eat and drunk too much.
wen i was at home i think that i really need something strong ( i mean strong in flavour and caffeine) and i brewed this sample of tasting kit dan cong.
i brewed in my little gaiwan about 4 grams of it ( in the stepping instruction say 25 grams per litre)
1 step delicious sweet fruity and a little malty the liquor is a nice red ruby
i steeped for 20 second.
2 step for 30 second the same
adding a 10 second to every step i had 9 step of this tea and this tea don’t lose any flavour
now it os one of my favorite and i want to place an order of this
if you love black chinese tea and dan cong this is the tea you don’t wanna miss give it a try!
one of my favorites first flush ,i’m not a fan, i recently discored that second flush for me is better.
btw the dry leaf have a strong smell of mint and a little of green an flavoour.
the tea liquor is light yellow and the tea is butery nutty and when cold down the floreal note comes up!
