From Yunnan Sourcing

Orange Blossom Aroma Dan Cong is a rare Dan Cong varietal that is grown at an altitude of 850 meters and comes from trees aged 80-100 years old located in Tianzhukeng Village (Guangdong).

The leaves are greenish brown and hand-processed into long loose spindly curls. Medium-light level of roasting preserves this teas incredibly unique and luscious aroma and creamy taste.

Long wiry leaves. The aroma and taste of tangerine, orange, orange peel, minerals – as advertised. The flavors are mild and it did not re-steep well for me.

This tea is a nice change-of-pace specimen rather than something I am yearning to drink specifically. I keep it in my cupboard mainly for the variety purposes.

Flavors: Citrus, Mineral, Orange, Orange Zest, Tangy

This sounds so good!

ooh, yum. I also like to keep a dancong on hand for the sake of variety but ran out a while ago, this might have to be my next purchase!

Dried apricots, lemon juice, the liquid from canned mandrin oranges. Minerals. Cured tangerine rind.

It doesn’t smell very impressive when it’s dry—just like a standard inexpensive Dan Cong, really—but wet the leaves with hot water and the aroma is an explosion of stone fruits. Dehydrated apricot, nectarine, peach pulp. A 5 second rinse tastes sweet and viscous with nectarine juice, and a 10 second steep is a delightful peachy hue with a heavy mandrin orange taste. Another 10 seconds and the sweetness morphs into the light tang of lemon juice. Step up to 15 and you get tangerine rind in the mix. A bit longer still, and the taste is eerily similar to a tangelo. Longer, and it’s orange and lemon droplets squeezed into a mineralic rock oolong. Go beyond that and you have a dry floral with a bite. It doesn’t even taste like tea until the 6th infusion. Not one of those “squint really hard after taking a sip and maybe you’ll find some flavor notes” teas. It genuinely tastes like citrus.

Haven’t been on Steepster in a bit, hauled around 1500 pounds of 4-inch electrical conduit into a ditch today and glued it together, my clothes are covered in dirt and sand, there’s concrete in my hair, and I still haven’t showered. However, this tea is so dang good that it reserved a rating right after finishing it. This is easily my new favorite and I’m going to covet my remaining 21 grams.
