Phoenix Village - Dan Cong

Add to Cart

This lot was produced by the Zhang family in Jiao Di Village in the Wu Dong Mountains.

"Da Wu Ye," known as Big Black Leaf, grows almost exclusively in Phoenix Village in the Wu Dong Mountains of Guangdong. Da Wu Ye is a medium leaf varietal and a natural hybrid of local "Ya Shi Xiang" bushes and the "Shui Zian" varietal. It is also called "Snowflake Dan Cong" and has the lowest harvest quantity per bush of any Dan Cong. The medium-low oxidation level processing gives this tea a beautiful green-red leaf style.
