This is a weird one. Isnt good but if you let it cool down a lot it sweetens and becomes something ok but still meh.

Its just a bit weak in its strength. I can get a bit of fruity aroma, some honey sweetness, a bit salty, slightly thick. but its all a bit jumbled up and lost in the background behind the Dan Cong oily bitterness, which is also not that strong tbh. .

The best Dan Cong I have had have been the ones that are so pungent that flash steeping is necessary & any oversteeping can ruin them, but once brewed quickly & correctly there is an explosion of (insert whichever amazing taste & aroma you have brewed) that just takes it from being ‘tea’ to being ‘wtf-tea’.

This one doesnt really have that. You just sorta steep it and leave it to cool down and its ok but not great. Sorta bitter & salty without any strong aroma or taste to lift you out.

Its actually a lot more expensive than other vendors who sell decent Feng Huang too. Meh, not very good.

Basically loads of Fenghuang, jade oolong & sheng puerh.

90+ is godly

80-90 is something i would buy again.

60-80 ok, but probably more bland or basic in their flavour.

0-60 something tastes wrong with this one.
