2013 Spring Traditionally Baked Dancong

by jayinhk » May 7th 16 2:35 pm

I have 350g of 2013 spring dancong up for grabs! This is a nice tea now, after settling down for about a month--when it first came in it was quite mild and tasted predominantly of roast, but it is much better now! The tea was on the road for an extra day because I missed the initial delivery slot, so it may just have needed to rest.

This dancong has been re-roasted at least once because of the high humidity in this part of Southern China, and is a little roastier than the previous dancong I offered. I have had great results brewing it with a technique that Imen suggested (2g per 100ml for two minutes). I got some interesting complexity brewing that way in Chaozhou clay that I hadn't found with flash infusions--more than just honey orchid for sure.

See my previous thread here:

Out of the 500g I originally purchased, I'm keeping what's left of 100g for myself (I've had three or four sessions of this tea so far) and 50g is going to another TeaChatter.

This tea is $22 for 50g. Shipping is an additional $9 for 50g, and $11 for 100g. I have a vacuum sealer and will seal the tea in a fresh mylar bag (no vacuum sealing, as that would crush the delicate leaves), before wrapping the tea in bubble wrap and packing in a fresh box.
