Tea Review: Huang Zhi Xiang Dancong (Chaozhou Tea Grower)

Huang Zhi Xiang Dancong
Chaozhou Tea Grower
Type: Oolong
Origin: China, Guangdong Province, Chaozhou
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf aroma has notes of lychee and nut shells.

The golden liquor has a thick, rich aroma with fruity, buttery, and nutty notes.  The mildly astringent flavor has tart notes that reminded me of tropical fruit, a hint of flowers, and a long semi-tart fruity finish.

The aroma of this oolong is entirely decadent.  The color deepened following the first infusion and the flavor and aroma mellowed by the third infusion.  This would do very well prepared gongfu style, using a small brewing vessel and more leaf.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
