The tea is made by the leaves from Song Tree No 2. Song Tree No 2 is about 360 years old as one of the four oldest Dan Cong trees still exist in China. It is the 2nd generation of a old tree from Chinese Song Dynasty(960-1279) - died in 1982.
Dan Cong is the hardest tea to make. There are many factors will impact the taste and aroma (the weather, the temperature, the tea ware and of course the water.)
If you think Dan Cong is bitter, that’s because you haven’t tried the old tree or original Dan Cong Tree.
If you love Dan Cong you should try this tea. And make sure you tried in a nice sunny day :)
