The Snow Flake dancong is a unique dancong well-recognized for its high fragrance. this tea is produce only at high altitude tea farms and pick only during the winter when night dew freezes overnight. It gets it’s snow flake name because the tea bushes have frost on the leaves in early morning that look like snow flakes.
This tea has been aged since early 2010 (on lunar calendar it’s still winter 2009). Being an exceptional tea, its fragrance is still strong. Fresh snow flake dancong typically has floral fragrance. Once aged, the fragrance changed from floral to fruity with different characters. The liquor from this tea, prepared gongfu style, is fragrantful and bold in the mouth. After about 5 steeps, the boldness fades and the liquor becomes fruity and sweet. Like other high quality dancongs, this tea can be steeped many times with gongfu style.
