From The Cultured Cup

The descriptive name of “White Peach” describes the flavor profile inherent in this specific tea cultivar. White Peach Single Trunk is one of a dozen cultivars grown in one small region of Guangdong Province. Light and slightly astringent, with subtle hints of tropical fruit. This tea is delightful, from the dark leaves, to the complex aroma of the infusion which is a lovely golden yellow liquor, with a complex delicate woodsy, fruity taste.

From Guangdong Province in China
Growing region is misty and foggy much of the time, even when leaves are being plucked
Meals traditionally begin and end with this tea in Chao Zhou
Tea pairs well with their culinary specialties (goose, rich taro dessert, and egg white dumplings)
Very aromatic with a distinctive dry finish; also good cold
According to its different flavours, Dan Cong teas have been divided into many types, such as Zhi Orchid, Osmanthus, Yulan, Almond, Cinnamon, Ginger Flower, Jasmine, Honey Orchid, Huangzhi and Grapefruit

Thank you for the sample! I should have bought more than a sample!

I missed darker dancongs, and since I was trying this company out, I asked for a sample of one of my favorite types of tea. This one is especially fruity, and extremely good.

I was going to gong fu it, but it turned into a western session at an accidental three and half minutes. That was not a problem because it was insanely good. White peach is a good name for this tea, as it smelled and tasted like something made in an orchard. Immensely peachy, sweet, soft, oddly fuzzy, and then complex. Some floral notes of peach blossom sprang up in the smell, and in mid sip ending in wood and honey. Minerals rose as the tea cooled down, and came up again in the later steeps. It just kept on giving, and it was such a nice return during this cold weather.

I am also holding off on rating this one, but it is very, very good. My only complaint would be price at $27.59 for 2 oz, but I will say it does compare to the higher end Dan Congs I’ve had. I only wish I knew the varietal.
