In the world of oolong tea, there are four main types – Tie Guanyin from southern Fujian province; Wuyi Mountain oolongs from northern Fujian; Taiwanese oolongs; and Dan Cong from Guangdong province.
What makes Dan Cong special is the unique aroma sub-varieties available within Dan Cong. There are said to be at least 10 different aroma sub-varieties of Dan Cong, each with unique taste and flavor profiles. And in general, all these sub-varieties fall into 1 of 3 main categories – fruity, floral and herbal aromas.
Another unique feature that makes Dan Cong amazing is that there are no artificial flavors, additives or essential oils added to create their vibrant flavors. All of the different varieties come straight from the tea leaves and no other additives. The tea flavors have been developed by generations of selective tea cultivation, tea plants chosen in order to bring out the naturally fragrant flavors.
The word "Dan Cong" literally means "single stem." If you look at an actual Dan Cong tea plant, it differs from your standard tea plant in that Dan Cong are all single trunk trees as opposed to long interconnected tea bushes. The whole idea of Dan Cong teas is that all varieties stem from a series of ancient "mother trees." Legends developed around these famous teas. For example, Ya Shi Xiang “duck shit flavor” tea was given that name by a farmer who feared that his prized tea plants would be stolen unless he made the tea less attractive. Other teas in the area were traditionally called such names as “thieves’ shit” for the same reason.
