From Mei Leaf

Known as a doppelganger tea for its ability to imitate surrounding plants, Dan Cong teas are a wonder and if you haven’t tried one then you simply have to pick some up.
This is one of China’s oldest and most famous teas and was first cultivated about 1000 years ago. It is made from middle aged trees and charcoal roasted for a richer flavour. The result are long, curled, dark amber leaves which brew the most delicious tea.

Our Royal Peach Orchid (Mi Lan Xiang Dan Cong) comes from Wudong mountain just above Phoenix village. Because of the genetic variation and the rich diversity of the vegetation, true Dan Cong Phoenix Oolong has a large variety of flavour profiles. Tea farmers have tried to define them in groups pomelo flower, magnolia, ginger flower etc. This tea is Honey Orchid aroma and is made from semi wild trees that are approximately 50-100 years old.

Second tea tested in my sample pack!

~3g, 110mL, ~185F. + Wash

Wet leaf aroma: Very fruity and a tad bit smokey. You can definitely smell those peach notes!

Texture: Very smooth but also rather thick. Another reviewer said it has a umami note to it, but for me personally there is no umami notes in this tea. It’s just very smooth and thick, which can seem to be that very “savory” taste that one would associate with umami.

The flavour is rather interesting. Again, very strong peach flavour as well as a perfume flavour on the initial ‘hit’. The aftertaste manifests itself strongly as peach with more fruity notes.

At first I was wondering why someone says this has a celery note, but that would be another way of classifying that initial “perfume” note that you can taste.

Following the first steep, the main flavour body tastes like peach and now like a bit of applesauce as well. What’s neat is the empty cup smell, smells pretty much just like butterscotch… It really almost smells like sugar is really in that cup but it’s empty, it’s just the aroma!

For those tasting this tea, I would say you have to be very attentive of steeping time. Too much and you get strong perfume and celery notes, which eclipses the peachy and fruity notes,

As a summation, this is a rather decent dancong with very strong peach notes, with accompanied applesauce + roasted apple taste, with a strong perfume and celery flavoured front. Like fruity oolongs and want a peachy one? This is your tea.
