Huang Ruiguang is an award-winning nationally-recognized master & published author. He is respected for his work expanding and modernizing tea agriculture in Fenghuang.
This Huang Zhi Xiang Dancong is picked from Huang Ruiguang's favorite high-elevation plot in Wudongshan from older tree stock and meticulously hand finished by Master Huang's sons over 24 hours to bring out the deep, almost electrifying aromatics. Huang Zhi Xiang is an incredibly rich spiced varietal with natural cooling notes that come through with striking intensity with the perfect microclimate, careful hand-picking, and 24+ hour continuous hand processing and finishing. Only a few kilos are harvested every year, and we are excited for the privilege to share. Master Huang's work in Dancong tasting and agriculture has won him countless awards and recognition, a biography in a 2015 published book on the history of Dancong, and leadership in every convention and tasting event in Guangdong. Though he is mostly retired, he still works with his sons to produce limited quantities of fine teas like this one.
