Lingtou Yuan Wei Dancong

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.
