Dancong Juduozai 锯朵仔 - Almond fragrance
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.
Almond Dancong has a light liquor, of a very delicate golden color. The clarity of the infusion is unique among all Dancong teas.
It has a persistent and intense roasted aroma, which gets softer and more mellow at each infusion, while a delicate almond flavor emerges in the aftertaste, delicate and long-lasting. Just like precious white flowers, this tea is pure and candid, but presents a great persistency, accompanied by a fragrant sweetness.
