I usually don’t read the descriptions until I jot down my original thoughts, first! BUT…this time I read it prior. I’m going to try my best not to let it sway my thoughts/opinions/findings. Here-goes!
While infusing these leaves it smells woodsy and a bit like pink peppercorns with a hint of apricot, perhaps.
Upon first sip I can taste a woodsy-lime-creamy type taste…it’s pretty interesting! I don’t think I have ever tasted a tea quite like this.
I agree with a few other steepers in saying that my previous DanCong experiences have tasted more like a Big Red Robe but this is much different!
My 2nd sip revealed a peppery corn type flavor, oddly, but interestingly enough this surprises me in a very good way!
The more I sip – the more complex this tea is – I LOVE that!
As it cools I can pick up on the apricot and blueberry hints the description notes. AND…it actually tastes sparkly! Comparable to sparkling water or Champagne – ALMOST.
YEAH. I’m loving this! Maybe…TOO MUCH.
This is complex and special. A wonderous surprise!
EXTREMELY HIGH RATING ON THIS ONE FROM ME!!!!
