12 DTH Spring Blossom Dancong -

The leaves are a bit darker and browner than they appear in the photo. Has what I would call a typical dancong flavor....think mi lan. A touch of roast and florals transitioning into some ripe fruit. Its best characteristic is a nice lingering finish. An enjoyable tea....but not blowing me away.

Perfect looooong evening session.
Awesome Zheng Yan SX paired with Partagas Salomones 2008 and Oscar Peterson Jam – Montreux '77 original LP.

All washed down with perfect Delamain Tres Venerable de Grande Champagne.

The postman arrived at 8:30 am with a box full of wuyi samples from EoT. First up, an affordable half-handmade 2010 Zhu Lian Dan Cong. A very enjoyable tea which may benefit from more intense brewing. I look forward to experimenting.

2 boxes of Tie Guan Yin my mum received as a gift. Heavily roasted. Both smells like sour plums from the dry leaves and tastes like charcoal on the first brew. Subsequent brews did not offer up anything special as well :(

A Winter 2011 Concubine Oolong (Dong Ding), courtesy of Stephane from Teamasters, brewed in a gaiwan. It's sublime really :D very nice sweetness, not the overpowering kind, but soft and mellow.

I'm drinking the 9th infusion of 2011 half-handmade Jin Suo Shi from EoT.

I've clearly made progress in my tea education since lat year because this time around I can detect noticeable differences among the EoT samples. I'm trying to fall in love with the half-handmade teas but so far I haven't succeeded.

2011 Gong Xiang Tribute Fragrance Dan Cong from Tea Habitat: due to current respiratory issues, a proper tasting didn't seem in order, so I didn't actually weigh out the leaves. Wet, they fill my Chao Zhou pot about this much, not packed at all

Image

The tea is amazing--last night, the first 5 or 6 infusions were floral and delicate. This morning, I'm another 3 or 4 infusions in, and the tea is spicy and bold with floral receding a bit behind the spiciness. Still nothing like bitter. It's quite an amazing tea. Although it's brewed quite hot, and my Mojave yunomi is not sufficiently protective of my fingers for a full cup of tea brewed at 205, it does fine with these little infusions, and is remarkably harmonious with the Chao Zhou pot and my Petr Novak yuzamashi.

A Dong Ding oolong bought from a local teashop. Initial roast flavour turns to a flowery sweetness typical of Taiwanese oolongs. It's not super fantastic but still enjoyable! :D cheap too!
