I really love this stuff, Ba Xian has been one of my favourites for years, any grade is fine with me. Also Mi Lan, Ya Shi, Xing Ren,… you get the idea.

This one is mellow, such a mellow roast. Pale, creamy like korma paste (almond?), really nice aftertaste . White Magnolia flowery scents, which mixes with the creamy/oily to make a lovely aroma & and super thick zen cha qi. Slight honey sweetness, slight fruity something. Later steeps the dimension of the taste changes, it thins but that reveals the nutty presence of the oil still winding its way through the brew. yums.

I actually found this a bit fussy with oversteeps

I actually daydream of having Kilos of different single bush Oolong. I could drink them all day. I wish Oolong wasnt so expensive! Currently on the search for adequate all-day drinkers if anyone knows of some good ones (any fragrance).

Flavors: Almond, Cream, Flowers, Fruity, Honey, Thick

How does it compare to the one from Yunnan Sourcing?


I deleted my previous comments, ive just drank the YS one directly afterwards. Unfortunately for my wallet, the Jing Lao Cong is nicer. First off, the leaves are big & whole, while the YS isnt, it seems to me to be a totally different grade. There is a different depth of flavour and aroma in the Jing. Tastes more 3D, rounded, thick, soft, lush. This is in no way saying the YS is 2D or bad, it totally isnt – It has lots going on – butttttt… it hasnt got as much going for it as the Jing.


I have just realised that Lao Cong is picked in the autumn so this will be fresher than the YS which is spring, so maybe not a fair comparison

Wow, thank you for all the details! I was really tempted to get the YS or this one. I’m also tempted to get the Winter Da Wu Ye from Jing or YS. But I’m also tempted to get stuff from J-Tea. Anyway, I’m looking for the “perfect” Dan Cong and a daily drinker too (Which I’ll probably talk to Andrew and several people on here for suggestions).


The Mi Lan & Ya Shi are fantastic from Jing too.

Ive also had the Yu Lan (Not my fave) and the Xing Ren & Normal Ba Xian, the Xing Ren is nice but I reckon you can get better


Ive just looked and the three I really like are all the higher grade versions.. go figure.. But I always come back to buy more when my stock runs out :)
