Simple, Yet Rewarding
I’ll start by saying that my lack of experience with tea prevents me from having an extremely discerning palate, but I am beginning to learn to differentiate. That said, it is abundantly apparent upon first sip that this is indeed a Dancong, but it’s raw and unrefined. It is simple and to the point, but it is elegant in its simplicity. Through this tea, I now understand what is meant when one says that a tea has “character”. Furthermore, while it may be too early to tell, I want to say that this maocha is a workhorse. I’ve forgotten which steep I’m on, but it’s still delivering plenty of flavor at thirty second steeps. Started with four or five 10-15 seconds and slowly increased from there.
