Dancong Dark Roasted Oolong
From Fenghuang Mountain, Wu Dong Village, Chaozhou, Guangdong Province, China.
This tea is organically grown!
Dark brown, tight and lightly twisted leaves give a natural sweet honey aroma, once brewed fruity and floral 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, with a complex mouthfeel giving a combined floral and honey aftertaste sweetness.
Harvested in Spring 2019, at approximately 400m elevation, picking 2-3 half matured leaves from the wild variety tea bushes of Phoenix Mountain more than 40 years old, lightly roasted and 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.
