2007 Winter Feng Huang Wu Dong Old Bush Dan Cong "Ba Xian"
Harvest: 2007 Winter
Location: Wu Dong, Feng Huang county, Guang Dong
Fermentation/Roasting: 25% / light wood roasting
Description: This precious dancong is from old bushes (avg 40 years old) of the Wu Dong plantation area of Feng Huang county. The dry leaves are complete, tight, and loooong!
The focus of this dancong was to express the ethereal and elegant floral fragrance of the Winter hand-harvested leaves from vigorous old bushes of a higher elevation plantation. The floral scent has the impression of both gardenia and orchid. The Winter season infused the leaves with an additional layer of creamy and honey aroma. Just enough wood roasting smartly caramelized the complex components of aroma while retained the ethereal and refreshing quality.
Liquor is delightful golden-yellow with a remarkable clarity. Taste is refined, with a hint of bitterness going deep in the throat and quickly changing to lingering and comfortable after-taste.
