Mehhhhhh. Not loving this. There’s a a fresh, buttery quality to it- like snap peas, clarified butter, and fresh cut grass. But, that is followed by a sharp, citrus rind that just doesn’t work for me in conjunction with the former qualities.

Flavors: Butter, Citrus, Floral, Snow Peas

Fun tea. If you are a tieguanyin fan, you will likely enjoy this product. There are substantial floral notes in-mouth, with a unique citrus aftertaste that follows. There is a bit of a dancong “edge” to it – that sort-of cilantro bite that can be stronger or weaker depending how you brew it. A worthwhile tea to investigate for tieguanyin and dancong lovers alike!

Of note are the large, beautiful leaves. Quality picking.
Dry leaf – light honey, honeysuckle, fragrant floral, creamy, floral sweetness like rose, some mineral sweetness, green oolong herbal/green notes. Very TGY like. In preheated vessel – pomelo comes through – like mandarin oranges and sweet grapefruit.

Smell – fragrant floral, creamy, sweet, lily of the valley, orchid, oolong green leaf, creamy and sweet nuttiness like macadamia nuts

Taste – arrival is floral with creamy development. Some butteriness and herbal notes – bay leaf and light cilantro, orchid. Aftertaste of citrus and sweet citrus, creaminess with floral overtone, candy orange flavor. Later steeps have herbal and grassy umami. Pleasant sweet citrus aftertaste still in later steeps.

This is an enjoyable tea with a heady aroma of honeycomb and orange blossom. Lots of juicy citrus and floral fruitiness along with a slight tartness. The taste and scent of this tea lives up to its Pomelo & Flower name. It compares favorably to TTC’s Citrus Scented Four Seasons which is quite remarkable considering this one is unflavored. The difference is YS’s is fruitier and thicker while the pomelo scented oolong has a more refined taste. Both are good in their own right, but lately I find myself craving the YS tea more.

I’ve tried many different ways of brewing this tea, and flash steeps at just below boiling seem to bring out the best flavor. Short steeps are key to minimizing bitterness. Packs a nice cha qi/caffeine punch too.

Yum! Thinking of getting a dan cong from YS. Have you tried their others?


If you are just buying fenghuang dancong, I would suggest jingteashop.com. Their Mi Lan AAA, Lao Cong Ba Xian & Lao Cong Ya Shi have a stronger flavour than YS Dan Cong – I can really tell each different tea apart from each other.

if you are defo going with YS I would try the same ones mentioned: Duck Shit (ya shi), Ba Xian, Mi Lan Xiang. They are truly wonderful types of tea.

There is a price difference though for this, the jing Milan AAA for example, is $34/100g vs the AA grade for $16.50/100g@YS $14.50@jing

its really good though :)


@Cathy – YS mi lan xiang is really good too

@Rasseru – i’ve got jingteashop on my radar. plan to order from there once i finish off my YS stash


do it man, you will not regret it. the milan AAA is so fruity & nice with an ever so slightly baked edge. so good!

Thanks guys! I’ll see if Jing Tea does reasonable shipping to Australia. If not, I’m defs ordering the mentioned YS teas

A nice, floral focused DANCONG that I enjoyed quite a bit. B+ on the StephiDancongometer.
