Song Zhong

 

A dyed-in-the-wool Fenghuang Dancong par excellence, this tea greets the lips with a fruity bouquet of pear, nectarine, and strawberry, balanced by a characteristic light minerality. Harvested from tea trees more than a century old, one can taste the refinement of years of growth and savoir-faire in the layers upon layers of flavour. Such was already the opinion of one of the Southern Song emperors, who took a cup while feeling thirsty on Fenghuang Mountain, and his legendary appreciation made that race of trees cultivated ever since. With its creamy body and lasting orange flower scent, we're sure you, too, will enjoy continuing this historic lineage.
