This has quickly become one of my go-to orders at P&T. Dian Hongs are great but they can sometimes be almost *too* sweet; here, the taste is very similar to a Dian Hong but with a hint of astringency that makes it perfect
Quite similar to yunnan gold, both are quite malty, yet different enough to order both ;) The aftertaste is definitely more fruity (in a sour way, not sweet) whereas yunnan has a more caramelly aftertaste. I would recommend this one for summer and spring, and yunnan for fall and winter.
Although the notes are not really strong (rather mild) they are easy to spot/taste. Really enjoyed it.
Probably my favourite of all P & T teas. Delicious and different. You should sell it in bigger aroma bags: 50 gr. is too little and I always have to buy two or three of them at a time ;-)
Interesting tasting notes, worth trying.
