Wow the nose of this is something I have never smelled on a roasted Dong Ding. This will be my 4th that I have tasted. Doing this in the gaiwan.

Smell: sweet brown sugar, coffee, a creamy nutty smell.
First Steep: After a quick rinse I do a 20 sec brew time to start things off. No much coming through, not as roasting as I would expect.

Smell: More coffee, and coconut coming off the gaiwan. Smells even better.
2nd Steep: Still not much on taste coming through. This tea is a lot lighter then I would expect.

So far I am intrigued I just wish it will give me a little more. Long steeping will hopefully change this.

I’m a lover of all teas. Open to almost anything,but my favorite are oolong, black, and green. I have recently been trying to get into pu’er .

Other then tea, I’m an Apple fan girl and a fan of basketball and tennis. My favorite teams are Spurs,Celtics, Thunder, and …Lebron (LOL). I have a degree in Anthropology, which at the moment is not being used.
