Finally had an opportunity to try this Dancong that DT is now carrying online!
I might be wrong here, but I think that this is the first Dancong that’s ever been a part of our lineup!? As someone who’s tried several other Dancongs before I’m really interested in what this might be like comparatively. The biggest test, for me, will of course be to brew it Gong Fu and see how it tastes that way. This time around I just had it as a pot of tea, which was shared among several people. My snap impression is that this is pretty nice though; it was a little astringent on the top of the sip and had some great roasty character in the body. The biggest thing for me that I loved though was the sweet, bright and DISTINCT lychee undertones and finish. Really, really stole the show for me and were just so completely delectable. I can only hope that they’re as nice when you brew this one Gong Fu.
I’m still a bit on the fence with this one, I think – I liked it but I need to experience it Gong Fu to really know how I feel about it, and I think the price point is a little bit high even with what Dancongs usually go for. So, jury is still out. But first impression was positive!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
