I am having problems getting this tea to be much other than astringent and little bitter. I’m playing with the parameters, but since I’ve only got a sample I won’t get much experimental room. I do get hints of floral and citrus.
Yu Lan Dan Cong
Other names: Magnolia Dan Cong
This is a rare variant of Dan Cong and unique to Canton Tea Co. It is relatively high-grown and lightly baked to produce subtler floral flavours. Leading tea bloggers have rated this tea very highly. It rewards careful brewing and can stand multiple infusions if brewed with care.
Our Buyer’s notes
“The thick tea liquor is mellow with a touch of sharp citrus well balanced by a good sweetness. The aroma is very floral yet delicate with a creamy hint and some nutiness.”
