Beitou Zhilan Xiang
碑头芝兰香 Bēitóu zhīlán xiāng - for lovers of elegant, subtle fenghuang dancong. Absolutely love the peach aroma on the dry leaf. The tea has a combination of floral and milky aromatics with some spearmint, the mouthfeel is very thick, smooth and creamy. Super long lasting fragrance - orchid flowers linger in the mouth, with good huigan. Not tannic or bitter at all even after over-steeping. Just fantastic!

This wonderful dancong is the perfect dessert tea. The dried leaves emit a lovely roasted note with orchid aroma. When infused, they unfurl into beautiful, long, dark green leaves with a heavy seductive perfume. The gaiwan lid smells of lychee, peach, peanut skins and baked pie crust. The liquor tastes like sweet, peach tea with a thick mouthfeel. There is no bitterness, astringency or tannic aftertaste even when pushed. A class act.

The dried leaves of this dancong smell of lychee and tropical fruits, when placed in a pre-warmed gaiwan. A biscuit & floral aroma can be found in the tea soup itself, which is medium bodied, smooth with soft tannins and subtly sweet, like the nectar of chrysanthemum flowers, not over powering like dancong can sometimes be. After swallowing, a lychee aftertaste lingers on the palate. This tea is a pleasurable study in the transition of sweetness.
