Description

Dan Cong ("single tea shrub" in Mandarin) is native to Guangdong province and is identifiable by its large brown twisted leaves with copper highlights. This oolong is made using the Mi Lan Xiang cultivar, whose name means "honey orchid fragrance".

An excellent Grand Cru with floral, honeyed and vanilla notes as well as mango fragrances, which develop against an elegant powdered texture.

In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional chinese Gong Fu Cha method.

This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
