Tan Yang is part of a family of artisanal black teas from this coastal enclave in Fujian Province. Its long history is fabled and distinguished as this area was an early exporter to Europe during the late Qing Dynasty. Its clean and refreshing notes and unparalleled sweetness iare enhanced by an earthiness and a lack of astringency. Attributes which underscore why so many tea enthusiasts love this tea.

Lot Notes. Tea was grown near Tangyan village in FuAn city. Lot is a mix - primarily sturdy black leaf, with a smattering of gold buds. The pick is mid-season 2023. Leaves are broken, our pricing reflects this appearance, however, it has not lessened the quality of this tea. 

Tea Facts. Lot was grown in Tangyan Village. The cultivar for this tea was once used solely for green teas. Each pluck may or may not show a contrasting golden tip. 

Tasting Notes.  This congou offers a soothing and smooth flavor with an beautiful amber infusion. We find notes of cocoa, caramel and plum, with an enlivening palate feel. Virtually no astringency!

Brewing Suggestions. We recommend 2.5-3 grams per 6-8 ounces of water at a temperature of 195-205 F.  Keep your steep time short, 1.5 to minutes will provide a cupwith a range of this teas wonderful flavors and aromas. Drain the leaves; when ready re-steep, the 2nd steep is equally rewarding.
