From Nannuoshan

Our Da Hong Pao is mildly baked. The distinctive roasted aroma well harmonizes with the clear mineral body. If properly brewed, you will not miss out on the floral hints either.

TASTE: Mineral, roasted, subtle floral accents

This tea is part of sample package sent to me for review.
i went with entire sample which was about 6g
6g 100ml gaiwan 195F
Rinse/ pause/ 5/5/7/10/15 sec
This tea is medium roast Da Hong Pao.
Its nice ,sweet and not overly roasty .
I would say its very safe for the people interesting in yancha but afraid of roasty or punchy flavors.

Thank you so much NanNuoShan for the opportunity to try your teas

Thanks for the sample, nannuoshan! I think this is my first Da Hong Pao, although I’ve had roasted oolongs before. The dry leaf includes medium sized leaves that are dark, wide, and twisted. It smells like twigs, maybe some charcoal, and burnt popcorn (in a good way!)

The tea liquor is a pretty peach color, smooth, lightly viscous, and tastes like a roasted oolong with a hint of peach. The roasted flavor glides over the top, but it’s not too strong. In the second infusion, there’s a really nice juicy texture coming through. Mmmm! The third infusion is similar to the second and the subtle peach notes in the aroma are very pleasing. I followed the recommended gong fu steeping parameters for the first 3 infusions, but continued infusing it a few more times. In later steepings, I noticed that nice touch of mint that I sometimes taste in roasted oolongs. Overall, this is a warming and comforting tea, good for a cold winter night.

Thank you for the nice review!
Is it a bamboo tea-tray from Taiwan, the one in the flickr picture?
Although we cannot see it all, it looks a neat tray of high quality bamboo?
Can you post a couple of pictures of it?

Thanks! Actually, the wood below the cup in the Flickr picture is just my desk! I do have a nice tea tray though, but it’s liighter in color, and the cutouts are in the shape of a cloud and breeze. I love it!

nannuoshan

maybe we speak of two different photos :)

Tealizzy

Oh! I thought you meant the photo in my review! Yes, that’s my cloud and breeze tea tray. I got it from Mandala, but I think Dragon Tea house also has it. I will post a photo of the whole thing for you.
