Summary: Easygoing but really good dancong
Prep: 100cc gaiwan full to brim with dry leaf, boiling water, flash infusions at first. About 10-15sec for 4 and 5, and then dropped temp to 190F and steeped out as long as necessary to chase the flavor.
Sessions with this tea: 6
Taste: I don’t understand the flavor, because I’ve not had anything really comparable. At first I wanted to say lemon-lime like 7-up. Plus it had that effervescent and high fragrance feeling of dancong. Then it settled down to like fresh pear with some spices mixed in. It was fresh and floral the whole way without being overly sweet, which is nice.
Body: medium, effervescent feeling, bright. Really delayed buzzing energy.
This tea steeped out for a really long time. I would say this is relatively beginner friendly, but the price! Also I don’t know if this one is still available.
