From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a 中山 (middle mountain) Oolong grown at about 1200 meters. The varietal is called “Nan Jiang Xiang” (Wild Ginger) because of the aroma and taste having some likeness to Wild Ginger. Dan Cong Oolong’s varietals are numerous, this one is quite rare and grows well at medium to high altitude.

The taste of “Nan Jiang Xiang” tea is incredibly complex and powerful, while still remaining well within the realm of refinement and elegance! There is sweetness, spiciness (much like raw ginger), floral notes (like Ginger Flower), bitterness and astringency. The tea is very thick and lubricating and easily goes 10+ infusions when brewed gong fu style. Tea soup is gold-orange, the brewed leaves still mostly green with some wilted brown (as is typical of traditional Dan Cong processing).
