3rd time trying it now. It’s getting better each time taste wise. I found out the problem. It’s not the taste but that my stomach is sensitive to it. Perhaps the sharpness and the sour notes at the end steepings did my tummy in the first go around. I drank it in the morning before any food. >.< The 2nd time I drank it after dinner and it was much much better. I’ll probably have to work on finding the right temperature and steeping time as it is complex, full-bodied, intense yet smooth, bold, pungent, rich, thick, astringent… Definitely not a mellow light tea. Although intense, it is balanced which makes it pleasing. Some honey, fruity, lychee, sour notes. It numbs my tongue a little too. Has a long finish. If you’re a fan of Dan Cong, I think you’d like this. Should give it a go.
