Middle Mountain "Rose Aroma" Dan Cong Oolong Tea * Spring 2018
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Rose Aroma (玫瑰香) is a unique Phoenix Dan Cong varietal, that has distinct rose aroma and sweet floral taste. The tea soup is a deep viscous golden color. Leaves are light to moderately oxidated, and hold up well to multiple brewings.
This particular tea grows in Tian Zhu Keng village at an altitude of about 800 meters, and is grown by the same family who grows our "Hou Zhong" Dan Cong. The year round cool temperatures combined with fog and mist gives this middle mountain Dan Cong a strong character. The tea trees that produced this tea are 40 years old and growing naturally (not pruned).
This is an interesting varietal with unique character but without a high price tag.
