Lao Cong "Ji Long Kan" Old Bush Dan Cong Oolong Tea Spring 2017
Ji Long Kan is a unique varietal of tea that grows at medium altitude (900 meters) in the village of Zhong Ping (Feng Xi area). Ji Long Kan varietal (literally means "Chicken Cage") is originally a Feng Huang Shui Xian varietal but naturally crossed with other tea trees and became distinctive. Ji Long Kan tea is grown only in Zhong Ping village, and the tea garden is comprised of trees that grow naturally, ranging from 60 to 400 years of age! The tallest and oldest tree is about 5 meters tall and 4 meters wide. Our Ji Long Kan is sourced from this garden and is a blend of several trees' leaves.
Most importantly, the taste and experience of Ji Long Kan is both unique and elegant! The aroma is floral with notes of cream and stone fruit. The tea soup is thick and creamy, coating the tongue with it's elixir-like essence!
