Lingtou Yuan Wei Dancong

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTW-73

A classic black wulong from Guangdong, both very suave and exotic.

This tea comes from a less exploited side of the Dan Cong Mountains where crops are grown without chemicals.

Its lively and fruity liquor (guava and honeydew melon) displays intense honey and floral fragrances. Powerful in the mouth, vegetal and woody notes are supported by generous tannins.

Produced from thirty years old plants, this deep and well balanced tea offers a lot of infusions.

Its finish is long, true to its name (meaning "taste of origin"), and worthy of exceptional teas.

A worthy representative of the rock teas (Yan Cha), this Chinese wulong with delicately rolled leaves was only slightly roasted, preserving its flavourful vegetal, citrus and floral fineness. Its full and tangy (tangerine) liquor, deploys rich tropical (durian) and honeyed aromas.
