Description

Dan Cong (which means "unique tea plant") originates from Guangdong province and can be recognised by its large brown twisted leaves with copper highlights. It is an intermediately oxidised oolong, and its leaves are roasted at the end of the preparation process.

This magnificent Grand Cru boasts floral, fruity, spiced and toasted notes. A silky, sweet and highly complex tea. A rare oolong.

To deploy all the aromatic complexity, the leaves should be infused multiple times with the traditionnal chinese method, the Gong Fu Cha.

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