Raven Leaf Dan Cong | Oolong Tea
Available online only.
The eternal battle of bittersweet. The sweet citrus of the aroma, the bitterness of the rind in the cup. Light in body, but deliberate in character. A tenacious performer through many steeps.
Made in April 2020 by Mr. Chen Shaobo, a young generation tea man who went to college in Europe, but fate would bring him back home to make tea. The tea material is from the “Big Dark Leaf” cultivar from Phoenix Mountain (Fenghuang Shan). Legend has it that this mountain is the location of a war between two mythical characters, General Light and General Dark. After 300 years of battle General dark lost and promised to stay in the wild, unmanned mountains faraway. These forces were transformed and now present themselves as “White leaf” and “Big Dark leaf” tea plants.
