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.”
