Dan Cong Teas

Dan Cong teas are made in Guangdong Province, China. It’s a term for a group of cultivars that are believed to be descendants of Shui Xian (at least according to one story).

Dan Cong itself translates “single bush” as traditionally each bush would be treated separately in determining what is the best time for plucking and how to process those leaves (though such honors are now only bestowed on a few rare, highly valued plants). 

Dan Cong can come in a wide variety styles. We source Dan Cong Feng Huang from Mr. Lin Zhi Min.
