From jing tea shop

Origin : Chao Zhou, Guang Dong province
Harvesting area : Da Ping Village, Wu Dong Mountain
Harvesting : Spring 2011
Plantation altitude : over 800 meters above sea level
Grade : AAA
Yixing teapot pairing : Zi Ni, Xiao Hong Ni, Hei Ni, Qing Shui Ni, Chao Zhou teapot
Dry leaves appearance : The tea leaves are tender, soft, but thick. This tea is usually more heavily baked than the Song Zhong dancong to allow the tea to get its unique honey and lychee like flavor. The size and texture of the leaves testify that the tea come from aged trees. Due to the high level of its growing location, even though this Milan dancong has been brewed for times, its leaves won’t fully open, which is one of the characters of the high mountain tea.

Aroma : The dry aroma featuring a delicate sweet honey like fragrance. The wet leaves offer an even more complexity with all the aromas increasing and mixing beautifully.

Liquor : The liquor holds a lightly green/reddish color with a excellent clarity, which shares an elegant floral aroma and a smoothy sweet taste with a lovely honey background due to a heavy roasting. This Dancong oolongtea has always been reputed to be the dancong that offers the closest fragrance to the famous Song Zhong Dancong.

This tea is simply incredible! I ordered 50 grams of this, and meanwhile some of you may recall I had a bad experience with a bitter dancong tea & I was ready to write off them off totally!

Anyway, I am persistent (some might say stubborn, lol). I tried this last night and was very pleased but thought I would write a proper tasting note for it this morning.

I put a pinch of leaves in the gaiwan and then used water that was around 180F. After a quick rinse I steeped the tea for 20-30 seconds. What I got was a tea that is light yellow and has a nutty aroma with a sweet honey and lychee flavor. I am happy! This tea is not bitter at all and has a lingering sweet aftertaste.

The second steep is also lovely! The aroma of the wet leaves is slightly toasty with honeysuckle filling the air. The tea is mild with a very smooth, sweet taste. I wonder if this is more heavily roasted than the other ones I had and perhaps that mellows it out a bit? Whatever it is, I am not complaining!

Third infusion I let go for about 45 seconds. I am getting a thicker, oiler type of tea liquor still with a lot of sweetness. There’s a tiny bit of bitterness lurking in the background but I am not too bothered by it. Still, I can see that keeping the steep times short will be the key for enjoying this one. And it is very good! I’m happy to have found one I really liked! It is also AAA grade and fairly pricey so I certainly won’t be drinking it every day.

I think Jing Tea Shop has a new customer for life. :)
