Received a very small sample (~ 5g) in my tea of the month package so as a preface I didnt brew it enough times to get to right possibly.

Light roast indeed the leaves became unfurled after 2-3 flash steepings, cant say I got much sweetness or fragrance that I’d normally expect every steep seemed too light and thin after the 3rd steep all I tasted was leaf. The leaf reminded me of the last steepings of a shui xian wuyi, very slight hint of mineral and raw leaf taste.

Grand tea, yunnan sourcing and rishi offered more fragrant, sweeter, increased longevity in their mi lan xiang dancongs, while I just realize rishi’s dancong is almost 2x the cost of this one I think ill stick with puer from W2T and stick with yunnan sourcing us site for budget dancongs especially since W2T shipping is so rough.

Love everything White2Tea has so far(Puer wise) so ill just chalk it up to bad brewing perimeters.

Willing to pay up to $5/oz

Willing to pay up to $8/oz

Willing to pay $10/oz


I try to refrain from numerically rating a tea until I have tried brewing at least an oz of it with various different parameters and vessels (hotter/colder water, longer/shorter times, yixing/gaiwan etc)
