Not the tastiest Dancong. I got the 2019 harvest of this tea from my recent YS order, and it performs poorly in most parts. Decent leaves with a bit of brokenness, with a nice but slightly weak aroma and a decent liquor. The flavour is mediocre to decent, with a nice hint of florality paired with bittersweet notes. The texture is decent, nice smooth texture with a bit of astringency and bite to it. Character is average to poor, not a lot of steep variability at play here. Finish & aftertaste is quite decent, nice floral punch in the aftertaste when brewed stronger with a nice juicy finish as well. Cha-qi is almost non-existent and steep longevity is mediocre to average, topping out at steep 8-10.
