Tasting Notes

Full Description

This is our most special Dan Cong of the year! It's named as Yang Mei Ye because the tea trees look very similar to the Chinese plum trees. It also offer an extinctive sweet plum fruity note in the tea accompanied by a strong gardenia flower like fragrance, hence it is classified to be in one of the ten major Dan Cong aromatic groups, Gardenia Aroma. This is another less well known but more connoisseur like tea in the Dan Cong world. Just like the Peach Kernel Aroma, it's also from farmer Liu's uncle's plantation that's located at a higher elevation (around 820 meter) in Phoenix Mountain. 

From the coastal area in Canton province, Phoenix Mountain possesses mineral-rich soil and is constantly surrounded by mists and fog, covered by wild tea tress and tea farms, as well as the folklore of the Phoenix Dan Cong Tea. Many wild tea trees are at least 100 to 200 years old. It’s a special type of Oolong treasured for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma, and is well-known for its ten major aromatic groups. Dan Cong teas are named and classified by their aromas, and the aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated as a cultivar.
