I have loved tasting all the different kinds of tea in this beautiful bundle!
Hi Nichole, thank you very much! We love to propose a bundle of dancong teas as a bunch of flowers; a travel into cultivars and fragrances which can be infused at your own pace, creating a unique and personal narrative sequence. Feel free to contact us anytime for further information, or for a virtual tea :-)
I think that Eastern Leaves proposed a super introduction for dancong. Classic flowery dancong to more fruity or spicy side. 20g per pouch is a great amount to try in different way. My only complain is the packaging that can be very tricky to shut (but Eastern Leaves told me that they are working on it for western customers).
Hi, thank you very much for your kind words: we have appreciated the tasting notes you sent us, and the final remark about the inner bag motivates us to speed-up the re-design process that is on the making right now. We wish you a good day with further fragrances!
