I'm uncertain about this Dan Cong. Is it good, is it bad? no idea. 3 hour aftertaste. bittersweet, not unpleasant, still have good mouthfeel. hmnn.

I'm still learning how possible it is to have tea experiences that are completely out of the norm and delude yourself. I remember very clearly the first time I sat with a teamaster and drank the tea I had been brewing for a year - the wrong way. Entirely different tea.

Heh, so what are you saying you want to brew it my way? LOL
Oh is the same one as earlier, the Honey Orchid?
I have some from TeaCuppa I haven't gotten to yet.

Yup, and verdict is in after a few more brewings. I like it. I don't know if it is 'good', but I like it.

Dan Congs can be fantastic. I hear good things about the teacuppa one, looking forward to your report. :D
