This tea is organically grown!!

A truely rare tea that has a limited harvest of just 10kg of finished tea produced by Song Lin & family each year!

Dark blueish/grey, tight and lightly twisted leaves with a natural sweet potato aroma. The wet leaves are very aromatic giving a deeper leathery with sweeter honey notes. The tea soup a rich, clear, rose colour. To taste, a complex range of deep leather and good roasted strength, combined with a fruitness and honey sweetness with hints of lychee through multiple infusions, leaving a pleasant dry aftertaste and lasting flavour. As the tea is allowed to cool, flavours become more pronounced. A superb quality Dancong tea!
