Dancong Dark Roasted Oolong Tea
Zero Waste Refill (in store collection only at present)
From Feng Huang Mountain, Wu Dong Village, Chaozhou, Guangdong Province, China.
This tea is organically grown!
Large long & twisted leaves with dark, greyish & golden tones, light orchid and camphor aromas. The damp leaves have a greener appearance giving powerful floral aromas. The tea soup is a light, clear golden colour with a smooth full flavour of floral notes and big orchid tones, touches of grapefruit and a nuttiness, enjoying a long lasting floral sweetness. A beautiful tea!
Harvested in Spring 2020, at approximately 400m elevation, picking 2-3 half matured leaves using a Shui Xian cultivar from the wild tea bushes of Phoenix Mountain more than 80 years old, lightly roasted and charcoal baked traditional processes by Tea Master Song Lin & family.
‘Dan Cong' meaning Single Bush, traceable back to a single bush/tree or group of bushes/trees.
