This is about as good as it gets, for a Dancong Oolong from the Phoenix Mt. Range in Southern China. Made by a small family, hand picked and hand crafted-- this tea had to be secured at a maximum allotment of 3kg, before even being harvested. The flavor of most Dancong Oolong produce fruity, sharper notes, as opposed to this cultivar, which instead yields a tangerine, soft body, and velvet texture.
