50 gr. Signature pack

Dancong is one of the most special and peculiar Wulong teas. Its uniqueness lies in its cultivar: it is made using the leaves of the same shrub, hence the name "Single bush", that after 40 years starts maturing its own distinctive fragrance.

Yashixiang has such an enchanting fragrance that even its legendary creator kept its secret through his life, never revealing the tree species that could produce this unique aroma. Differently from other Dancong teas, the mellow floral fragrance of Yashixiang is enshrouded in an overwhelming citric note, that makes us think of tangerine and verbena.
The leaves of Yashixiang are also bigger than other Dancong teas, and they show elegant hues of purple, gleaming in the teapot.

If you want to further explore Dancong fragrances, try also Gardenia, Orchid, Magnolia, Osmanthus, and Almond variants.
