Pretty damn similar to the oolong version. I’ve had Black Dan Congs before and they tend to be similar to Black Tie Guan Gins or Wuyi blacks, and of course, are on the sweeter floral spectrum I barely leave. This one follows suit, and again, the notes are valid. The orchid is not quite as pronounced as the fruity notes, especially the honey and cherry. The tea hits heavy in the first two brews western and Gong Fu, and then really lightens out. Grandpa was a little too heavy and sweet.
This is a very good tea, but I think I’m not doing it justice. At least it’s recorded before it disappears from the database.
Flavors: Caramel, Cherry, Fruity, Honey, Malt, Orchid, Wood
