Octavia Tea - Honey Orchid - Oolong Tea
$ 17.99 $ 21.99
Dancong teas are harvested from hundred-year-old, wild-grown tea trees in the Phoenix Mountain appellation of Guangdong, China. The deep roots of these ancient plants are enveloped by mineral-rich, volcanic soil that can only be found at great depths, which translates into more phytonutrients and flavor in their leaves. This top grade Shui Mi Xiang dancong offers complex, lingering notes of dark honey, plum, and apricot with hints of delicate brown sugar, and a pleasantly long-lasting floral-cedar finish.
BREWING TIPS: Because this leaf is so light, we recommend using a full tablespoon of tealeaves for every 8 ounces of water. Infuse in 195°F water for 3-4 minutes. Dancong teas are also well suited for brewing in a traditional, Chinese guywan.
