A wonderful and potent DHP aroma off the rinse. Sweet notes off the leaf after 1st steep. Exceptionally smooth and viscous. A nice roast, not over done, no off notes. Nice leathery roasted flavour, maybe a touch floral. True Rock Tea or ‘Yancha’ carries a very hefty price tag. This tea has been sold to us as ‘half rock’ which means it’s most likely a border tea of Wuyi. In any case, this Da Hong Pao definitely warrants this price 👌.
Try this tea along side it’s un roasted brother of the same batch!?
