The dry leaf is medium-long and twisted in the same style as many dan congs. Its color ranges from deep brown to light golden-yellow. The leaves are generally whole, as would be expected of this grade. When steeping, the leaves unfurl very slowly, and it takes around six steeps to more or less open them completely. The...Read Full Review

The aroma of the dry leaves is heady and very sweet, there are intense notes of orchid and orange blossom, this sweet flower nectar aroma also has a creamy quality and a hint of lychees and a tiny little blip of toasted sesame at the finish. I might have spent the entire time the tea kettle was heating up with my nose ...Read Full Review

The aroma of the long, twisted leaves is a blend of sweet and sharp. There are notes of dried cherry and smoke with a finish of orchids and sweet potatoes.Read Full Review

A dark, spicy, evolving dancong that resembled a black tea more than any other oolong I've tried. It would be top-notch, except that the flavor gave out after 2 steepings.Read Full Review
This is the second Dancong I've sampled from Octavia recently. I was curious if it would be similar to the first--but it's completely different...

An immensely complex tea that retains its nuances through many infusions. I love it!Read Full Review
The dry leaf doesn't quite betray the complexity...it has a mild aroma, slightly toasty but mostly hiding the explosion of fragrances that happens when steeping this tea in water.
Upon brewing, the aroma suggests apple, orange, ...

I thought this tea was superb! I brewed it for a short amount of time and have no complaints -- no bitter aftertaste, subtle flavor, silky smooth texture -- this tea was great for sipping and relaxing with at lunch. It was even good to drink when cool. I look forward to having this again!Read Full Review

This was among my favorite Dan Cong oolongs that I've tried. It slightly disappointed me though in that its best aromatic qualities seemed to vanish quickly after the first cup, but the remaining flavor was still very good.Read Full Review

Usually when I write a review, I do it from the perspective of trying to give whoever reads it a sense of what to expect - what the tea is likely to taste like, how it will respond to different kinds of brewing conditions, what other kinds of teas and experiences it's likely to resemble - rather than saying whether I t...Read Full Review

This tea is beautiful! Both smoky and fruity (in the best sense of this term). This is one of the teas that woke me up to the possibilities of leaves, hot water, and quiet. I hope it will always be available.Read Full Review

This is pretty good Oolong. It has a deep, dark aroma, but is light bodied and subtle. The tea has a slightly sweet, dark, but quick finish and goes well with soup and/or dumplings, playing off the saltiness of the broth and the heartiness of the dumplings. I've found that the flavor doesn't linger very long, but th...Read Full Review

Life in Teacup describes this tea as being a lot like Shu Pu-erh without the pile fermentation odor. I agree.Read Full Review
The aroma of the dry leaf tea is a lot more like aged shu Pu-erh than like other aged oolongs I've tried. Most aged oolong that I've tried has been re-roasted to the point that the roast has seemed to domi...

I often find Dan Congs to be fascinatingly complex teas, and this one is no exception. This tea I also found a bit easier to work with, in that it was easy for me to bring out the qualities that I enjoy most. It was a little more like a Wuyi oolong in overall character than other dancong I've tried. The dry leaf is ...Read Full Review

Very unlike any other dancong I've tried. The dry leaf of this dancong has a savory, smoky quality, but is nonetheless recognizable as a dan cong. The aroma of the dry leaf is reminiscent of some Darjeelings (ones that I am not a fan of, incidentally). Not even a hint of floral or fruity qualities.Read Full Review

This is Peet's most affordable and gentlest-tasting oolong. It has a nice toasty-grain flavor with hints of fruit, decently complex but not overpowering. Peet's apparently calls it "pungent," but I don't think that's accurate at all.Read Full Review

Very complex. This one is much less fruity and floral than the other feng huang dancong I've tried (from Adagio), but it still has a faint suggestion of fruit...the aroma is cooler, and more skunky, woody, and perhaps earthy. Yet there is a similar light, peppery quality in the aroma. This tea also becomes astringen...Read Full Review

Aroma very complex with a lot of things going on. The dark leaves surprisingly brew a light amber liquor that is very clear. Initially a strong fruity aroma like dried apricot, some vegetal tones. Upon drinking, a bit peppery. Very smooth and clean. No bitterness, rather sweet, but with some astringency. A bit th...Read Full Review
