We are proud to offer this Almond Fragrance dancong wulong. I remember trying this style of tea a few years ago with Tony Gebely from World of Tea and were both pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the fragrance. It took a while to find a farmer that could supply the same quality and fragrance of what we had previously tried. This dancong is one of the 12 famous dancong wulongs from Phoenix Mountain range (Fenghuangshan) in Guangdong Province of China. If you love our Duck Shit fragrance wulong, you’ll enjoy this one as well.
This tea has notes of almond, apricot, and floral notes. It reminds me a little of the almond liqueur Frangelico with a hint of fruitiness and floral notes.
