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 astringent if you let it steep a long time. I find it is also good for multiple brewings. I also tried varying the temperature and noticed no difference.

I'm still not very experienced with these Feng Huang Dancongs, and they seem a bit tricky and confusing to me, but that fascinates me about them!
