Gong Xiang Dancong

0.16 

Even those who know the Dancong tea family may never have heard of this type, in fact Gong Xiang is not among the most famous members of the extensive Dancong family, which counts several hundred varieties.
The rich fruity, warm, spicy and sweet flavor couldn't be overlooked by the first farmers who decided to offer this tea to the emperor.
In fact, the character Gòng 贡 is the stylized representation of a man who holds a tray above his head, to show respect.
