From Tea Trekker

Appearance: single, matte grey/black leaves, thick and slightly twisted
Shape/Style: strip-style leaf
Plucking Style: hand-plucked
Oxidation: 30-35% oxidation
Roasting: charcoal-fired, medium roasting in the traditional manner
Flavor: taste of dry cinnamon, sweet potato and yams
Aroma: some charcoal, earth & wood, base of the trees. Subsequent infusions bring out a fleeting floral aroma of soft rose
Liquor: lovely light tawny brown tea liquor

For 2016 spring we selected dan cong teas that have been grown lower down the mountain and plucked from younger tea trees. We were looking for tea with good flavor and long lasting qualities for re-steeping at a reasonable price. We also considered ease-of-steeping for this years dan congs, as we realized that older, larger leaf dan congs can be notoriously difficult to successfully steep.

So, our 2016 dan cong selections are less expensive than the aged & rested dan cong teas we have in inventory from several years past, and offer good taste at an ‘everyday drinking’ price.

Ba Xian is a lovely dan cong for the tea enthusiast who wants a dan cong experience without the sweet high floral notes in the aroma and taste. We detected a little soft whiff of rose blossoms but not the saturated magnolia or orchid aromas found in other dan congs.
