(Spring 2023 harvest) The aroma is heaven. Very very smooth. Top tier.
“You Hua Xiang” Dan Cong (Pomelo Flower Aroma) is a unique varietal of Dan Cong. It’s a naturally occuring hybrid of Feng Huang area Shui Xian that has been selected over a period of two centuries. Pomelo Flower Aroma Dan Cong grows at around 850 meters of altitude in the north of Feng Huang in a village called Da’An. The plants grow naturally, many reaching a height of 3 or even 4 meters!
The taste of “Pomelo Flower Aroma” tea is incredibly complex and powerful, while still remaining well within the realm of refinement and elegance! The tea is slightly more oxidized than most of the Dan Congs we offered this year, the higher oxidation brings our the fruity and floral aspects of this tea just perfectly. It brews up a heavy bodied golden (with slight orange) hued tea soup that overpowers the senses with an intoxicating creamy nectar-like texture. It easily goes 10+ infusions when brewed gong fu style. Tea soup is gold-orange, the brewed leaves still mostly green with some wilted brown (as is typical of traditional Dan Cong processing).
Da’An, Feng Huang Town, Raoping County of Guangdong Province.
