From Yunnan Sourcing

Our Xing Ren Xiang 杏仁香 Dan Cong Oolong is grown in Ping Keng Tou 平坑头 Village at an altitude of 870 Meters. It comes from trees and bushes growing naturally aged 20-40 years of age. No pesticides or artificial fertilizers were used.

Xing Ren Xiang “Almond Aroma” is one of the many varietals of Dan Cong that has been around for centuries. It is called “almond aroma” because during the roasting process the tea smells much like roasted almonds!

The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, with notes of honey and cream.

Today I tried something a little different for this tea, in order to see if it makes me like it more. Also, I didn’t want to spend much time on the session. That’s why, I only used about 2.5g in a 100ml gaiwan filled to about 2/3 each time. On top of that, I also broke the dry leaves to about 1/5 of their original size, so that the extraction is faster.

The resulting tea is less pungent and lighter bodied. However, the taste is more robust and in fact manifests its more subtle aspects better. I am happy with how it turned out and I will continue experimenting with this tea further in the future.
