Detailed review is in the most below
Though a heavy rain day, because I am under the path of Typhoon Ewiniar, but when I take this tea out, there is amazing fragrance, thick and natural mixed with flavor uniquely appears on charcoal roasted tea.
LaoCong written as 老枞 which means old tree. Ages of these trees are around 70 years old. The length of tea threads are not so extraordinary along with other factors of appearance. But the aroma from dry leaf is something special.
Tea liquid has obvious viscousness and richness. Sweetness from aftertaste comes fast with momentum. Tea flavor spreads in whole mouth and deep into throat and surrounding teeth.
Spicy feeling is minor even you may ignore it. But when sniff the brewed tea leaves, you can feel it easily.
After some infusions, tea leaves opened widely and there comes out more greenish color with dark red or brown edges surrounded.
Most tea leaves are thick and soft.
