This is the best Dan Cong I’ve ever tasted. The smell and taste of Magnolia is simply beyond words. It has a delicate sweetness with the Magnolia, and it has a strong vegetal aftertaste I love in great oolongs.
While it is a bit pricey ($13 for 1.5 oz.), if you are looking for a good Dan Cong this is it. I was able to yield 5-6 good infusions before it started to really die down. I drank it out of a 6 oz. glass teapot from Intelligentsia, with about 1/3-1/2 of the teapot full of this tea.
If you are unsure whether you want to drop the money or not, what’s cool is if you have a coffee shop that serves Intelligentsia teas they’ll probably have this stuff. That’s how I first tried it.
