    • Da DanTea Varietal

    Da Dan is named after an aromatic type of Osmanthus for its evocative floral and fruity profile. Master Zhang cultivates this rare varietal on his rocky high-elevation mountain plot above Daping using traditional organic growing techniques to preserve the beautiful biodiverse landscape and bring deeper complexity to his tea. This Dan Gui is finished in the modern greener style after a full day fluffing and turning to bring out the biggest most intense florals possible.


  • 'The aroma is full of orange blossom and citrus marmalade. Indeed, the first infusions were packed with big cistus and neroli flavor with angostura clove notes, orange citrus peel, and clean jasmine. The texture was woody like Huang Zhi Xiang Dancong, and slightly cooling on the tongue.'
