From Yunnan Sourcing

Our “Wild Huang Zhi Xiang” grows wild at 950 meters of altitude (Middle Mountain) above Da An Village. This comes from a small stand of trees that grow naturally and are more than 40 years old.

Huang Zhi Xiang Dan Cong (黄枝香 ) Oolong is a unique varietal of Dan Cong grown in Phoenix Village (and Ling Tou village) in the Wu Dong mountain area of Guangdong. Huang Zhi Xiang literally means “Yellow Gardenia Flower Aroma”, because traditionally this tea when processed and lightly roasted will give off a strong gardenia aroma with an accompanying floral taste. Our traditional one family Huang Zhi Xiang Dan Cong is naturally grown, painstakingly processed by hand into mao cha and then roasted 3 times over the course of 3 weeks time to bring out the aroma and strong taste.

The tea has a strong pungent floral taste, honey sweetness and a balanced vegetal astringency and bitterness to counter the sweetness. The result is a mouth watering delight that fills permeates through the mouth and throat with long lasting flavor and lubricating mouth-feel. Strong cha qi. This is tea is very complex and probably not for someone seeking a sweet and easy oolong.

An incredibly unique tea, grown naturally and carefully processed to preserve it’s lovely character.

Spring Harvest from Tian Zhu Keng Village area

This one is pretty mild. It mostly just tastes like plants. Sweetened with milk, it’s pretty pleasant, but I probably should have leafed it more heavily. Grabbed from a TTB.
