From White2Tea

The 2018 Milan Maocha is a bit of a misnomer, how can a tea be both maocha [loose tea] and a brick? In this case, the term maocha refers to the Dancong oolong tea being left in its raw form before pressing. We commissioned this production to be left with stems and large leaves for this pressing. The roast is also medium-heavy, roasted for 24 hours with the highest temperature at 125 C. We wanted a heavier roast that could evolve and calm in the coming years, despite having a slight bite at the time of pressing.

The brick is incredibly fragrant, with deeper honey and floral flavors emerging throughout the course of a session. This tea is still slightly punchy, but the tea has a complex interplay between the roast and the brighter aspects of a traditional Milan Dancong. Drink now or age as you please.

Each brick is 200 grams. Each tong is a bamboo leaf packed with two bricks.

EDIT: THIS WAS TASTING NOTE 8000!!! DAMN!!!

I’ve been sitting on this sample for a while; but I finally decided to brew it up the same day that I tried out the Rose Aroma Dancong. I was a little worried that I was just in a bad head space and that would cause this tea to taste weird/off to me too, but this tasted fucking amazing – better than I could have expected, actually! Here’s my instablurb with the tasting notes I picked up:

Delicious from start to finish – notes of lychee, orchid, floral apricot/quince, almond skins, and dryed out wood; all alongside a heavy roast and hearty astringency!!
