Aside from being close to lots of great tea, one of the other perks of living in south China is the variety and availability of amazing fruit, with pomelos being one of our favourites. That’s why we specifically sought out a quality Youhua xiang/Pomelo flower fragrance dancong for 2022.
As the name would suggest, the fragrance is very floral floral, however, this tea offers more than that with a full citrus experience. A fruity quality balances out the fragrance, and is even accompanied by citrus zest note that lends a pleasant bitterness. This is all capped off with a refreshing and slightly minty sensation that is left behind in the mouth.
This tea is a strong candidate for cold brewing as well, producing a crisp and refreshing beverage during the hot months.
Please note that the 250g size does not include a tin.
We recommend brewing this tea using Chaozhou style gongfu brewing. Here’s how it’s done:
For something different, you can also try cold brewing:

Not only pleasant bitter bites and cool fragrance. This tea gradually reveals honey roundness and pomelo / grapefruit “yun” in the aftertaste of subsequent brews. The rhyme of pomelo also persists through the very last round of infusion and ends superbly smooth. The force might not be so strong with this one (pun intended) but it leaves the grand impression of how the tea progresses from sharp bites to fun and smooth fruity notes.

I love how the citrus changes through the session, while retaining a sweetness throughout. Starting with a pleasant sourness and grapefruit bite in early infusions, leading to a lime fruitiness in middle steeps, finishing with a less complex but ever so satisfying citrus cordial sweetness from around the 8th infusion. I’m surprised at how good the mouthfeel and finish is on even the final steeps of a session. A tea to sip and savour to experience the nuance along your citrus journey.
