Type: dan cong oolong
Origin: Chaozhou, Guangdong
The name Ao Fu Hou in the dialect refers to the spot where this wonderfully aromatic tea grows. The mother tree of the well-known Yellow Gardenia, Huang Zhi Xiang (黄枝香) was discovered growing behind a ditch on a rocky hill in the village.
It’s a rare dan cong with a sweet, musky floral fragrance, pleasing tannins with a luscious creamy finish. Treat yourself to this indulgence.
