This Da Fo Long Jing delivers a fantastic sip of tea, replete with freshness and long lingering nutty sweetness that transforms into a sugar snap pea sweetness in later infusions and eventually gently subsides (around infusion 4-6), leaving space for a thick umami richness (loads of amino acids here)! The mouthfeel is thick and brothy throughout the whole experience and intermingles with the flavors, rendering a silky smooth sip. The return sweet is truly astonishing. This Da Fo Long Jing is well made from great material, so be sure to take time to enjoy the aroma of the dry leaf, the liquor, the bottom cup and the gaiwan lid. There are unique qualities to each that give the experience a richness you’ll love indulging in.
