Details

An outstanding light roast oolong from China's Guangdong Province. The light roast adds a mild toasty flavour, with strong floral notes often compared to orchids.

This Ya Shi Xiang Dan Cong is noted for it's extremely high re-infusion potential. The leaves start to open up in the first few infusions, with the tea reaching its peak on the third. When drinking this tea, it's best to make sure you have plenty of time to spare, because it carries on giving rich, full flavours into the sixth or seventh infusion.
