China: Jing Dian Ming Cong
Jing Dian Ming Cong / Classic Name
Processed in Fall of 2017. Jing Dian Ming Cong is the poetic name for Huang Guan Yin 黄观音 aka cultivar #105. It is a cross between Tie Guan Yin and Huang Dan from Anxi. The combination of cultivars from a different region and the terroir of Wuyi give this oolong great complexity and is very enjoyable to drink.
Silky, well rounded with hints of pineapple and orchid. Elegant.
