KEDOÇAY Milan Dancong

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: long, dark and somewhat twisted
Ingredients: oolong tea
Steep time: 30 seconds
Water Temperature: 195 degrees
Preparation Method: porcelain gaiwan
Liquor: deep amber


This is the second tea that I’ve reviewed from the Turkish tea company +KEDOÇAY. Their website isn’t in English but thanks to the power of Google Translate I am able to understand their product listings pretty well. This is a highly oxidized oolongs and just happens to be one of my favorite varieties of tea. The taste was complex and roasty with sweet notes of honey and a strong floral finish. The mouth-feel was smooth and there was very little astringency. Multiple steepings abound with oolongs and I think these leaves would be able to go at least six or eight rounds. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience drinking this tea and it is the kind that I will often find myself drinking all day long. I do wish that I knew which variety of Dancong this was as they are usually categorized by fragrance.
