A decent dancong! I got this tea from my recent BLT order, and for the price, this tea is quite good. Beautiful leaves with a vibrant yellow sheen, paired with a decent wet leaf aroma and a decent liquor. This tea had a generally more “masculine” flavour profile with a deeper minerality and spices flavour, but still retained a characteristic citrusy taste. Juicy and smooth texture with noticeable “shan yun”, and this tea also had a very nice, refreshing aftertaste and a decent finish. This tea had a decent character and complexity, with a decent steep longevity. This tea falls apart mostly when it comes to cha qi, with a lack of cha qi being the glaring lack in this tea.
While this tea should be praised for what it does right, especially at this price, it can definitely push the boundaries of its qualities to make it a 80 or 85+ tea.
