Description

The name ‘Dan Cong’ means ‘one bush’ and follows a special process in which each tea tree is harvested and processed individually. Every tree produces a unique type of fragrant leaf, which are then fermented only on the edges giving the middle part of the leaf a natural, fresh taste. This exceptional Oolong tea becomes more complex and improves with age. The flavor begins with a roasted honey taste and ends with lingering floral undertones. Originally the tea was only given as an Imperial Tribute.
