Because I heard that this Da Yu Ling oolong is extremely potent I made another, shorter brew. This time I was pleasantly surprised. It was sweet, smooth with a little greenish/vegetable taste and it coated my tongue, sometimes it felt like I could actually feel the little parts of sugar in my mouth. That was the moment when it struck me: this is where this winter Da Yu Ling is all about! It's not this explosion of flavours but it's this 'energetic' tea that coats and cleans your mouth, that you can feel through your whole body. A tea that sooths you and makes you feel warm from the inside. From that moment on I enjoyed this tea very much because I felt so calm, relaxed and clear at the same time.
I enjoyed drinking this tea the most from the left cup because the edges are more rounded which suits this particular tea perfectly. Though the thing I like about the middle cup is that it's ideal for observing the movements of the tea(as how it behaves itself interacting with the glaze).
There was this particular song I was hearing inside my head when drinking this tea:
I hope you'll this song and maybe just like me, drink a cup of tea while listening to it =)
