Dan Cong Single Tree


We have been buying teas from the Fenghuang Mountain area of northern Guangdong Province for over 22 years. We mostly buy the teas from Milan tea trees, we just love the intense peachy flavors. A supplier suggested that we get a special offering. It is the tea from four different ancient Song Zhong tea trees. Song Zhong varietal is an old one up in Fenghuang. Also, the tea master roasted each tree's small production to accentuate the unique flavors. Each tree is labeled by a number. No. 1 is floral, No. 2 is fruity, No. 3 has body and No. 4 has creamy notes. These teas should be rinsed with hot water before the first steep. They can be re-steeped several times. Each time should be at least 15 seconds more the previous steep. Our supplier also said that you can do a cold brew with this tea. Truly a marriage of one plant & one person. It only needs one more person: a tea explorer. 

This product contains 4 individually packaged tins, containing .5 ounce each and arrives in a black & gold Harney & Sons gift box.
