DESCRIPTION

EIGHT IMMORTALS DANCONG
oolong tea (sample)

Dancong teas (pronounced "dan-tsong") are harvested from hundred-year-old, wild-grown tea trees in the Phoenix Mountain appellation of Guangdong, China. The deep roots of these ancient plants are enveloped by mineral-rich soil that can only be found at great depths, which translates into more phytonutrients and flavor in their leaves.

This classic dancong offers a creamy, velvety texture with generous notes of warm, buttery cinnamon buns and a lingering, orange-flower-honey finish. An intoxicating experience.

BREWING TIPS: Because this leaf is so light, we recommend using a full tablespoon of tealeaves for every 8 ounces of water. Infuse in 195°F water for 3-4 minutes. Dancong teas are also well suited for brewing in a traditional, Chinese guywan.

  1. Smooth. My new favorite!

    Posted by Lauren M on 1st Nov 2013

    Such a smooth cup... No astringency or bitterness here. I found that all the flavor notes they suggested were present and accounted for- in a glorious way. I think Dancongs might be my new favorite tea and, as an avid tea drinker, that is definitely saying something. Can't wait to add the Phoenix Mountain to my collection!
