From C. Sinensis Rare Tea Club

Despite having tried it, I still haven’t been able to learn much about this tea. The only information additional information we have from the producers was paraphrased as: "The tea was picked on the 4th of May, 2014 on a sunny day on the summit of the mountain called Jiulongke (九龙窠), around 400 meters above sea level."

It’s worth noting that Jiulongke is the mountain where the original Da Hong Pao tea trees live! These teas are clearly close cousins both in flavor and preparation

The liquor brews to a delightful orange-red, and the flavors will be familiar to Da Hong Pao lovers: a little smokey, with big hits of ripe strawberry and dark chocolate.

I was very excited to finally get my hands on some of this tea. The leaves look very similar to Da Hong Pao. The scent is of a deep and hearty roast with a slight hint of olde parchment. I placed the instructed amount in my warmed gaiwan and shook up the embers. The scent that wafted from my gaiwan (didn’t even have to open the lid) was intoxicating. My tea room was filled with a smooth char aroma and burnt sugared dates. I knew this would be tasty. The steeped leaves gave off the scent of a campsite after a rainstorm. The embers from last nights fire still sizzling. The leaves were long blackened green. They had a bright oily texture to them. The flavor was potently sweet. The brew had an almost alcohol rum taste. It had a smooth and full body. I was getting a lot of different tones. This brew stood up well against multiple steeping. It only had about five or so potent pours. I was a little disappointed in this brew. It was a very nice tea, yet I could get the exact same for half the price. I’ve had a few competition grade DHP, and I could see a close resemblance. They DHP would be much cheaper as well, and the flavor may be even more prominent. I still have some of this, so I will be trying a much more powerful session later on.
