2017 Milan Dancong
Pretty behind on these reviews from the tea club.
I think I had the water too hot for the beginning of this session. It was a much better tea at a cooler water temperature. Long lasting tea – I got 9 steeps from this.
200F, 100 ml shibo, time – 10, 10 , 20, 20, 30, 30
These steeps were much more mineral and woody. Kind of drying as well. Some fruitiness, raisin in aftertaste, and tangy.
Steeps 6-9 were with much cooler water 185F ish
These were fruitier with a thicker mouthfeel. It got much sweeter as the water cooled.
Of the two Milan Dancongs from this tea club (still have the 2018 to go), I liked the 2017 better.
Flavors: Drying, Fruity, Mineral, Raisins, Tangy, Thick, Wood
