Aroma/Color/Taste: This is a Dan Cong (single bush tea) which has orchid floral notes with a sweet subtle smokiness and a deep rich finish.  From a tree over 150 years old the tea imparts a revitalizing Qi.  This is a really beautiful tea from 2004.  This tea was amazing in 2004 and it continues to taste better each year.

Location:  This is from Phoenix Mountain in Chaozhou in the Province of Guangdong.

Made by:  As a native son of this area, Dr. Ming Wu, our good friend and partner, was able to get this incredible tea.  It's a few hour hike up the mountain, with an overnight stay with the tea master.  It is made from a tea tree over 150 years old.    

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first brew to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final brews.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot and spring or filtered water.  

Our teas are packed and shipped with eco friendly packaging when possible.
