From Canton Tea Co

Song Zhong is very high quality and rare aged Dan Cong widely used for medicinal purposes, but equally appreciated among connoisseurs for its sweet aroma and outstandingly rich, complex flavours with soaring notes of honey and orchids. Harvested from some rare 150-200 year old trees on the upper slopes of Wu Dong Mountain in Chao Zhou, Guangdong, this tea has been aged for 10 years.
Our Buyer’s notes
“Usually this type of tea would be stored for 25 to 30 years before becoming a medicinal tea that the locals use to combat heat in the body. However we recommend drinking it now to enjoy its fabulous fragrance and complex taste. We recommend infusing with filtered water to make the most of the rich, fresh flavours of this outstanding tea.”

I found intense aromas of red fruits and berries in this tea: sweet and bold smells of dark grapes and wild strawberries come out as soon as the leaves are heated, and they’re still present in the flavour, although in a very thinner way.

The liquor has a sort of wonderfully elegant violet hue, that I love particularly.

Once infused, the aroma of the leaves remembers me of herbs, like rosemary… or sage: yes, definitely sage. It’s like a walk in the countryside, just at the edge of woods.

I think it’s a pleasantly complex tea and a good example of aged Dancong.

Be particularly careful during the infusion if you want it to speak clearly, ’cause it could sometimes seems a bit too faint in the mouth.
