This tea is organically grown!
Dark brown, tight and lightly twisted leaves give a natural sweet honey aroma, once brewed fruity and delicate orchid aromas are revealed on the very aromatic wet leaves. The tea soup is a bright golden yellow in colour. A smooth, sweet, fruity taste of peaches and rounded depth of toasted rice with a complex mouthfeel giving a lasting combination of florals and honey sweetness.
Harvested in Spring 2021, at approximately 400m elevation, picking 2-3 half matured leaves from tea bushes of a Shui Xian cultivar that are around 60 years old grown on Phoenix Mountain, with a light level roasting and twice charcoal baked using the most traditional processes by Tea Master Song Lin & family.
'Dancong' meaning Single Bush, traceable back to a single bush/tree or group of bushes/trees.
