One of two new Dancong varietals we’ve added from 2017, our Marzipan xing ren xiang (杏仁香/almond scent) is an aptly named varietal, displaying a smooth nutty taste that’s accompanied by a distinct cinnamon flavour and sweet character.

This tea comes from old bushes (50+ year old) on Wudong shan in the Fenghuang (phoenix) tea mountains and is considered high-altitude (grown at 1000+ meters). These factors contribute to this tea’s quality, allowing for a thick texture in the mouth and a pleasant fragrance that is left lingering in the mouth and throat.

Please note that larger sizes (100-250g) do not include a tin, but will be packed inside air tubes to prevent breakage.

    Wonderful taste and a lovely texture. Sweet with a lovely fragrance. This is a really lovely oolong.

    Almonds and a bit of astringency (take care with the steeps) but sweetnes in the later infusions

    This tea presents nicely in gongfu sessions, western style steeping and as a cold brew. I generally prefer higher-roasted oolongs, but this is a special treat for me on the days I want to sip Marcona almonds in the sun.
