id go some Winter 2012 DYL from Origin .. [just to see how they compared like]
but discovered an opened sample pack of 2013 Spring Alishan: Zhang-Shu-Hu High Mountain Oolong - 阿里山樟樹湖烏龍茶 from Origin http://www.origintea.net/Alishan-zhang- ... 013-Spring
which had come unrolled, so it needs using
while its not the same as the FuShouShan 2013, to me its of a similar excellence
I'm curious, did you ever conduct the DYL head to head tasting between the Spring 2013 TTC and the Origin 2012 DYL? If so, I am interested in the results. I generally find that I prefer the qualities of Winter Taiwan wulong tea over Spring tea (allotting for the fact that every year is different), even though the often repeated opinion is that Spring teas are better. I prefer the "gam gam" throat of high mt. Winter tea.
