Dan Cong is a fascinating and truly unique Oolong varietal from the Phoenix mountain range, Guangdong China.
Cape Jasmine or ‘HuangZhiXiang’ is a greener or ‘light roast’ Dan Cong and as such storage in the longer term is important to keep the flavour from waining. We source all our tea from vendors who keep the tea refrigerated and we also do the same while storing the tea before we send them out to customers. Cheaper examples of Dan Cong will offer low amounts of flavour and high amounts of astringency. We have carefully selected this tea to offer a solid Da Cong experience!
A deep roast with honeycomb on the aroma. A complex light roast note coupled with tangerine and soft jasmine flower…Cracking!
