Xingren Xiang

Wafting an aroma of summer fruits from its dark, twisted leaves, while remaining gently astringent on the tongue, this Xingren Xiang entices one into the world of aroma-first Dancong oolongs. Approachable to the acolyte, the experienced Dancong drinker will appreciate the distinctive and unusual taste of fermented apple cider and fresh watermelon, along with a very comfortable, drinkable body. Subtly in the background, too, its namesake 'almond fragrance' accompanies the drinker through several infusions, even when steeped very lightly.
