Description

This dahongpao is supplied by a family I source much of my traditional storage pu erh from. I've done business with the family for years, and am only just now getting around to trying their dahongpao! This is the highest grade of dahongpao they carry, and I must say, it vastly exceeded my expectations. This tea is not as highly roasted as the 2005-2006 HK High Roast Dahongpao, and the roast is not at all overwhelming. This tea was perfectly roasted and the roast notes and natural aromatics from the tea are very well balanced.

The dry leaves of this tea aren't very aromatic, but the moment the dry leaves hit hot clay, you know you have something special in your teapot. Osmanthus, butter, caramel and spiced Christmas cookie notes arise. In the cup, the liquor has clean and distinctive dahongpao character (fruity and pleasant), with a surprising and pleasant Concord grape note in the finish, along with a little almond (which I associate with the best Wuyicha and tieguanyin)!

This tea has light and very tolerable bitterness, and the liquor is full and thick. This tea brews up wonderfully and has no flaws or off notes, so it truly deserves the premium label!

This is definitely a tea worth trying if you enjoy the flavor of good dahongpao, and makes an excellent benchmark tea you can hold other dahongpao against!
