One of our premium offerings for this year, this light roasted Rougui Dancong comes from high altitude (1200m) old bushed in Wudong mountain Liziping village. Along with being charcoal roasted, these factors all contribute to creating a tea that embodies a deep fragrance, sweet aftertaste and thick mouthfeel.
The name “Rogui” means cinnamon, and while there is an undeniable cinnamon note, we mostly notice this in terms of a delicate spiciness that balances out the tea. The dominant flavour is a pastry-like quality with a nice honey sweetness. We recommend smelling the wet leaves between brews to fully take in the flavour and anticipate what’s ahead.
Although we try very hard not to be influenced by the varietal name, it’s hard to deny the dessert like qualities this tea offers, which in turn make it hard to deny drinking it.
This is a tea we strongly recommend for those with significant experience both drinking and brewing Dancong with consistent and good results.
This is a premium Dancong and therefore comes at more of a premium price. If you are still getting acquainted with the various Dancong varietals or still getting the hang of brewing them properly (it can be tricky), we recommend starting out with something like our Milanxiang. This will allow you to develop your taste and hone your skills without spending more on teas that may not show their full potential.
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:
