Dan Cong (Honey Orchid)
A signature Oolong tea from GuangDong Province, the most south Oolong production area in China. Dan Cong means single grove, which denotes a special process in which each grove of trees is harvested and processed individually. Each grove produces a unique type of fragrant leaf, in this case a sweet orchid aroma with notes of apricot.
Instructions:
Basic preparation;
Before brewing, hot rinse this tea by pouring boiling water over the leaves and discarding the water. Use two teaspoons of tea per 8-12 oz of water. Steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

If you are interested in a lighter brew try using 1 teaspoon of dry leaves.

If you are interested in a stronger brew try steeping for 3 minutes.

This tea re-steeps excellently a second and third time. To reuse the same leaves, brew successive infusions, not letting the tea sit out for more than an hour. Infuse the tea in the same way as the first steeping, but increase the steep time by one minute for each infusion.
