From Yunnan Sourcing

Our Middle Mountain Saturn Peach Aroma 蟠桃香 Dan Cong Oolong is grown in Shi Tou Jiao Di Village at an altitude of 980 Meters. It comes from trees and bushes growing naturally aged 20-80 years of age. No pesticides or artificial fertilizers were used.

This is a medium+ level of roast, that was laboriously roasted, rested, and re-roasted many times to achieve a high level of aroma and body. Further aging will benefit this tea as the roast taste transforms this tea in a bouquet of fruit, honey and orchids!

Origin of the name: It is named “Saturn Peach” because it resembles the fragrance of peach. It also has this scent only because of its reputation in the sky, so it is named “Saturn Peach”.

Features: The aroma is similar to that of peach, the fruity aroma is obvious, and the tea soup is fresh and smooth. Steeps many times, while retaining a lasting sweetness

(Spring 2023 harvest) When brewed right, the aroma leaves me speechless. Perfection.

Desert island tea.

Oolong is delicious; Dan Cong is oolong; Dan Cong is delicious. I feel as though I know just enough about the stuff to understand why folks get stoked about it, but not enough to have had my brain and soul shaken into conversion.

There’s a certain satisfaction to drowning it hot and fast, ripping it out of the pot before it can put up its tiny astringency fists and punch me in the face. But also I kinda crave the long-lazy, the deep pull of wisdom and nuance and patience.

Ah. Maybe I’m craving some yin to my current yang… maybe pot-ripping will perfectly align with some tidy, quiet, dough-proofing future day, to bring its own kind of nuance and wisdom to me then. We shall see.
