From Yunnan Sourcing

Lao Xian Ong (“Ong” is local dialect for “Weng”) 老仙翁 (meaning is Old and Venerable Immortal or Old Sage) is a varietal of Dan Cong with more than a 1000 years of history. The oldest living tree is in Li Zai Ping, this “Mother Tree” is 400 years old and still producing.

Our offering was grown at 800 meters (this is considered “Middle Mountain”) and comes from bushes and trees between 30 and 40 years old growing in Tian Zhu Keng Village area.

Lao Xian Ong is a medium-small leaf size, with dark-olive pigmentation. During rolled tight during processing and. The tea is sweet, bitter, with a strong pungent taste and strong huigan. The aroma is more subdued when compared with Song Zhong or Xing Ren Aroma Dan Cong’s. It makes up for that with it’s strong cha qi, huigan and buttery body.
