Almond Blossom Dan Cong

An almond explosion.
Roasted to perfection by our Dan Cong Master, this Xing Ren Dan Cong gives a sweet almondy aroma. The cup is sweet with honey, marzipan and nutmeg biscuits on the first infusion and gains in fruity complexity on the second.

Roasted to absolute perfection, this tea won’t disappoint

I've just made a new friend

My first attempt at this was the 2min teapot brew, but probably with less than the recommended quantity of tea. I then tried again, using the Gong Fu quantities and the results were very different. This got me the aroma (mainly on the first brewing, less afterwards) and the flavour was full, filling the mouth. There was a slight background astringency too, which heightens the experience.

A great example of this tea

I have had the privilege of having this tea over many years. This batch is possibly the best, or very close. I prefer to make it in a pot and drink from a cup, rather than the gong fu way. It has the honey sweetness mentioned and a delicate flowery after taste that dances on the back of the tongue long after the tea is finished. With this tea and the Eight Immortals 'Tea Heaven'

This spectacular tea is made with Ju Duo Zhai varietal leaves picked from trees of up to 150 years old. The leaves are then processed in the traditional manner and finally finished by roasting over a charcoal fire. The flavours are so intense that it is hard to believe they are natural; but the sweet almond flavour comes entirely from the natural character of the Ju Duo Zhai leaves and the skilled processing of the master who has roasted it to perfection.

This tea is particularly suited it gong fu style brewing. So it’s best to use a small teapot or gaiwan. The perfect formula is 7g leaves to 200 ml water (90 degrees) for 15- 30 seconds. Infuse up to 10 times.

Tea lover and writer Geoffrey Norman named Xing Ren Dan Cong as one of his favourites, and you can find out why by reading his guest blog.
