From Yunnan Sourcing US

This Dan Cong is crafted from 60 to 120 year Dan Cong trees growing in the middle elevation (1150 meters) of the Wu Dong mountains. The family harvests just 8 kilograms per season (of which we obtained 4kg) of this lovely tea from a small cluster of older trees. The is processed entirely by hand into a kind of greenish “mao cha”, then roasted carefully in clay jars, stored for a week and then roasted 2 more time, each time with a rest time. The tea despite being roasted still maintains some green character which infuses it’s sweet character. The roasted brown character brings some fruit and spice to the tea which really does remind one of cinnamon. There is also a really strong cream taste (nai xiang) present in this tea.

Incredibly complex and tasty tea!

I tried this tea, and I’m not getting anything like cinnamon aroma. I did it gong fu style in a porcelain gaiwan. I’l try it again with a longer initial steep. Anyone have any ideas? I also have some ginger aroma dan cong. I’ll try that next to see if I can detect the ginger note.
