1. View

The dry leaves are of various sizes and have a vivid green hue. The brew has great clarity and transparency with slightly green and yellow color. The open leaves are big and have a light oxidation.

2. Scents

The dry leaves smell like fresh lavender! The brew's scents are fresh and fruity with notes of peaches.

3. Taste

The taste is sweet, pure, energetic, long and fresh. What characterizes the Da Yu Ling taste is this cool note that feels particularly refreshing. The elegant aftertaste is amazing.

 

Conclusion: This spring, I found that this DYL 93K tastes even better than the DYL 95K, which is why I only selected this batch!

Having spent some time brewing this tea on a couple of different occasions, I'm happy to say that it lives up to it's "King of the High Mountains" reputation. The liquor coats the mouth completely before delivering incredibly long lasting and complex flavors. I found strong notes of Lavender, baking spices, and peach. This years DYL is powerful in aroma and mouthfeel, and the aftertaste remains for a very long time. You can expect many steepings without losing any refinement or sweetness. Amazing!
