From Tea Urchin

This wonderful dancong is the perfect dessert tea. The dried leaves emit a lovely roasted note with orchid aroma. When infused, they unfurl into beautiful, long, dark green leaves with a heavy seductive perfume. The gaiwan lid smells of lychee, peach, peanut skins and baked pie crust. The liquor tastes like sweet, peach tea with a thick mouthfeel. There is no bitterness, astringency or tannic aftertaste even when pushed. A class act.

This is a wonderful yancha! I really enjoyed brewing this tea in my wee lil jianshui. The leaf consists on long sturdy tendrils of blackened leaves with a soft honey aroma with peaches in top. The leaves carry additional scents of orchid, fig, and nice smooth roast. I can already tell I’m going to like it. I warmed up my lil pot and prepared for brewing. Then, I stuffed the pot full and let the leaves warm up. An incredibly sweet and fruity aroma drifted from the lid with a strong scent of burnt sugar, honey, and brief wisps of fresh peaches. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. With yancha, I only get about 1 amazing steeping and 2-3 meh steepings. Accordingly, the first steeping was pure heaven. BTW the steeped leaves give off an explosive aroma of fresh cut flowers and ripe dark fruits. The taste begins with a succulent fruit flavor with a hint of char. The note progresses into a sweet direct peach flavor and crystal honey. This brew has a thick full taste and oily body with an exhale of (you guessed it) peaches and a lasting powdered sugar aftertaste. The qi is electrifying and creates a beautiful flow. I continued to steep those poor leaves over and over in hopes of recreating that first step, but I only received meh steeps (the flavor is decent but the body is missing something). If you decide to continue on this path, the brew will progressively become more and more dry with char notes peeking out. Eventually, my throat gets ached if I drink too much yancha. Anyways, this is still a fantastic tea, and I love my little pot!

Basically peach Oolong :)

TU’s description is pretty bang on the money, lychee, peach, nuts & pie crust aroma, with a taste of peach and thick mouth. This isnt the thickest I have had though, I actually thought it a bit light – butttttt this is no bad thing – it doesnt have so strong a weird taste you can get when pushing oily dan cong, this just has peach & nuts flavour with floral lushness on top of that

its weird but this tea makes me think of ‘soapy’ but doesnt taste of soap – conjures up images of glossy pearlescent things like soap can be. So good!

Im on steep 9 and its beginning to lose its thickness but still such a lovely aroma and nutty floralness I just had to write this review.

and also bravo for the sample prices which are basically the same percentage as buying large amounts. A good policy and one which means I will definitely be trying more of their tea.

Dr Jim

You didn’t miss any time digging into the box.

Rasseru

I got impatient

Dr Jim

I’m drinking the Yiwu Snake right now, but I think it needed more time to rest from the trip.

mrmopar

I felt the same about the Snake Dr Jim. It didn’t hit me like it should. Nice leaf though.

Rui A.

Yes the Snake Blend is one of my safety valve teas: when I get tired of drinking teas that I am not enjoying I go for one of these safety valve teas to release the pressure builty by not sipping a good tea.

Rasseru

i jumped the gun a bit and tried the peacock, its similar and I get a milky body. I think I really like Yiwu tea from what I have tasted.

I am going to buy a whole cake of both of them I think

Rui A.

I still have to try the Peacock tea. So much tea so little time in a day to sip it.

Rasseru

yeah its weird how you might say rounded body, but there is definitely a few characteristics that my brain picks up on in milk that these yiwu teas have so my brain thinks milk. could taste it straightaway, like hot milk. I want to investigate more blends as I have enjoyed every one I have tasted
