From Verdant Tea (Special)

Verdant Reserve Club – September

Huang Zhi Xiang, which can loosely translate as orange blossom fragrance. While the tea is certainly known for its citrus notes, Huang Zhi Xiang is one of the most elusive and beautiful teas whose flavor profiles span the full spectrum. Over a year ago we briefly had one Huang Zhi Xiang Dancong that we have ever been able to source again. Wang Yanxin, who knows what we love, helped us find this limited high elevation old growth harvest.

This tea has a dark toasted camphory aroma that is almost brothy like miso. The flavor is deep and potent with much of the complexity opening up in the aftertaste. Initially the texture is smooth and creamy, with a cooling sensation.

Later steepings reveal bright and intense muscat grape and lychee flavor with the grassy sweetness of sugarcane.

Sipdown, 100!! Made my Black Friday goal! Cold steep of this one.

I think a cold brew is actually my favorite way to drink dancong. It is SO tasty! Fruity, refreshing, all around delicious. Next summer I might have to get some cheap dancong to keep around for cold brews… It would be so nice on a hot day.

Woot woot go You!

This sipdown is from the final Reserve TOMC. I haven’t ever gotten around to comparing this ‘reserve’ huang zhi xiang to the ‘regular’ huang zhi xiang, so I can’t really tell you if it was amazingly better or not.

It is an interesting tea, & has been my companion during this afternoon of teaching, yielding a gentle fruitiness, some incense after-aroma, & a building citrus mouth that to me is more like grapefruit than orange. It’s a lovely tea, & it’s a sipdown!
