Da ye qing delivers a nearly perfect yellow tea experience while still being accessible to both the taste buds and the pocketbook. The leaf aroma starts off with freshly cooked butter cookies mingled with hints of straw and plenty of sweetness. The buttery cookie sweet roastiness flows into the liquor as well, evident in every sip and paradoxically combined with a refreshing, clean, crispness. Da Ye Qing truly teases the intersection of freshness and oxidation with it’s clean, bright mouthfeel and a somehow warming but simultaneously refreshing profile. The brewed leaf gives off a scent of sweet yams being steamed and the gaiwan lid teases us with fields of hay and a lilting floral note. Don’t miss out on this rare yellow tea treat!
