I tried the spring 2016 version. This tea has a very strong, fragrant aroma. The taste is relatively complex, very ‘round,’ with a little minerality and some characteristic dan cong fruity creaminess, but it’s less sweet than other dan congs I’ve tried. It also has some bitterness. The wet leaves have a flowery and slightly fruity smell.
I liked it less than any other dan cong oolong I’ve tried, but that’s not to say it isn’t an excellent tea; if I had not tried any other dan cong oolongs, this would definitely be up there among my favourite teas.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Fruity, Mineral
