Thumbs up!"“Drinkable” may not be an apropos term here – more like “quaffable” or “guzzle-able”."

Canton Tea Company consistently pleases me with their high-quality tea offerings, and their self-proclaimed “rare” Chinese Dan Cong Black is another winner notched into their bedpost.

In dried form, these tea leaves are ridiculously-long, gnarled, wiry things of beauty. The aroma of the leaves is intoxicating, with hints of spice, earth, and fruit. Once translated into liquor-form, a 4 minute infusion produces a beautiful pale-golden cup with a sweet aroma. The profile on the palate is exquisitely sweet and mild, yet fully flavorful. The fruit-like elements come through prominently in the sweet aspects, and “drinkable” may not be an apropos term here – more like “quaffable” or “guzzle-able”.

The finish on this tea is long and carries the fruitiness on through. Multiple infusions work nicely with this tea, though the initial cup is the true winner.
