Dan Cong Oolong Tea - Spring 2016
This is a new style of processing Dan Cong that shares some similarity to Anxi Tie Guan Yin. The result is a very green and very aromatic dan cong. The tea also has a very sweet taste, with some vegetal almost Tie Guan Yin like feeling.
Bai Ye Hong Cha has thick sweetness and a very pronounced baked sweet potato taste that lasts many many infusions. This tea is both excellent and peerless. You simply can't have a similar experience with any other tea. Highly recommended for Dan Cong and Black Tea aficionados alike!
