I've been working, slowly, through a few of the Daxue Jiadao offerings. I've been perhaps a bit distracted by old tea when I've had spare time, and everyday tea when I haven't.

I've now played with the foshou and foshou handcrafted
Interestingly to me the Foshou both tasted very similar in profile to Taiwan Foshou. As recall, in principle related varietals, but with centuries past, very likely now a distinct varietal. Yet the similarities are there. Albeit the Taiwanese one I tasted had more depth.

The only other foshou that I've tried (at least, so far as I know) was a heavily-roasted rolled Taiwanese example.

i haven't seen much of it online, but perhaps that's just a reflection of the online world.

As far as I know, it is a rarely used varietal these days. Might also not always be specified.

How do they compare to the stuff from DJ don mei??
I have only ordered one round of tea from DJ Donny, back when I was new on the scene. There was 30g’s of Dancong in that order, his selected Da Wu Ye from Fengxi Village. That tea was unmistakably juicy and tropical on the palate. Better than the two I have sampled from TH, so far, funny enough. Have you ever ordered from Tea Habitat?
After more time with Tea Habitat’s Dancongs, my aforementioned review doesn’t hold water. Recently doubled down and ordered many more oz’s of Imen’s DC. Love ‘em.

Taiwan's Li Shan from Hojo. I'm getting spoiled when I get such good material and the leaves are in great condition.
Beautiful florals with a candy sweet aftertaste. I melted in my chair, such good tea to kick off the day.

Xidian is special region, half Wenshan (文山) - PingLing (坪林)+Shidin(石碇)+Muzha(木柵)+Xidian(新店)
