Early spring tea materials from 2019 year.
Dark tea threads with neatness. Tight and fragrant. Honey like and mixed with some cooked sweet potato like fragrance especially when taste tea soup.
Clear tea liquor. Sweet and refreshing.
Tea flavor lingers long in mouth and spreads to whole mouth.
Excellent fresh orange zest/juice flavor base combined with mild baked goods/bread and florality that is powerful in the pot but not overwhelming in the mouth. Qi is energizing but not overwhelming. Many dancong oolongs have a bitterness issue, describable as an intense citrus zest bitterness, that is resolved through lower ratio brewing or very careful infusion times. John's offerings at KingTeaMall do not have this issue. I have brewed low ratio all the way to mega high ratio traditional chaozhou style and find that this tea is amenable to your desired brewing style. Although this definitely has a citrus zest bite to it, it is very mild and enjoyable. Personally, I prefer the more roasted dancongs like this one but this milanxiang or the yashi are both great dancongs for the beginner or the experienced as a great daily drinker. I'm looking forward to comparing this to the new 2020 milanxiang!
