Dancong teas 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. We selected this particular dancong for its thick, nectar-like body embellished with rich aromas of dark honey, spice and exotic fruits, followed by a hauntingly opulent finish. A true treat for the tea connoisseur!
Origin: Phoenix (Fenghuang) Mountain is located along the coast of China's Guangdong province.
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.
