Ambrosia 2019 Spring Baxian Dancong Wulong



If our Nectar Milanxiang is a treat for mortals, then this Baxian truly is the Nectar of the Gods.

The tea produces an intoxicating lychee flavour both dry and when brewed. This is balanced with just the right amount of floral fragrance. As you continue through the steeps, this tea develops and evolves in layers, offering something different with each infusion. There is a consistent fruity sweetness that fills the mouth and throat, along with notes of cinnamon and spice in the mid steeps.

As with any quality Dancong, this tea offers a thick mouthfeel across many infusions. We recommend taking your time between infusions in order to appreciate what this tea has to offer, just be sure to also maintain a high water temperature for your steeps.

Our top Dancong offering for 2019, this tea both deserves and demands your attention. For this reason, we recommend this level of tea for more experienced drinkers and with a deeper appreciation of Dancong wulongs and those who are confident in their brewing abilities.

The material used for this tea comes from high altitude, ancient bushes in Yahou (垭后) and has undergone two traditional style charcoal roasting. In our opinion, this tea provides a great representation of the differences between the common and the uncommon.

Please note that the 250g size does not include a tin.

    This is such a fruity and sweet Dan Cong! It is extremely mild, which can be a good contrast from some Dan Congs that have a lot more astringency. The later steeps had notes of honey and flowers.

    This is a well balanced tea, with fruitiness as well as floral tastes that do not overpower each other, which is what i felt from most dan congs. And to top it off, the sweetness that lingers in your mouth and throat is distinct! Recommended if you want to feel excellent tea

    The bitterness that is characteristic of dan congs is negligible too, leaving you with the sweet and floral taste instead of strong astringency as the leaves go through multiple steeps

    Ambrosia is the perfect name for this tea. I havent found a flavor like this in anything but dancongs and it is why they are one of my favorites. Fruitiness and strong floral notes are at the forefront even in the dry leaf. Super fruity and sweet in the first steepings, and the charcoal roasting adds an incredible depth that makes this tea truly ambrosial. Top shelf stuff!

    //Eyes Dry Leaf
    Beautiful slightly twisted leaves. Blueish and fudge brown tints

    //Nose Dry Leaf
    Light floral smell (too light?)

    //Nose Wet Leaf
    A sort of tropical fruit sweetness comes out after the rinse

    //Eyes Liquor
    Luxurious golden color

    //Mouth Texture
    Thick texture with generoux mouth coating

    //Mouth Taste
    Something wierd here. Maybe it’s my fault but I tasted some unfresh tropical fruit juice and wilted flowers. Strange and unwanted zest coming from nowhere hmm

    //Mouth Finish
    Creamy and smooth dry mouth sensation

    //Eyes Wet Leaf
    Nice olive green and sienna combo

    //Body Sensation
    Light headed, body heat, fuzzy minds

    //Brewing Notes
    1 gram per 20mL of water at 95C. 25 seconds + 5 second

    The strange fades away over the brews and the floral notes can get stronger
