    Exotic oil slick and mango cream; lasting mineral finish; a beautiful fragrance to the wet and dry leaf

Get ready for a fruity bomb of a tea. This has become our go-to brew when we are craving a mouthful of ripe, tropical fruits.

Da Wu Ye or (Big Black Leaf) is usually considered a low to medium grade Dancong because it can be produced in larger quantities from plantation tea. However, when produced from high-quality trees growing in higher quality terroir it is an incredible cultivar full of tropical fruity yet creamy tones.

As with all Dancongs, the brewing of this tea is very particular. Brew with 95 degree water to get the balance of minerals and top notes but feel free to play with the parameters. You can crush a small quantity of the leaves (about 5% of the leaves in your pot) - this is a traditional Chaozhou brewing style if you want to brew cooler while bringing out some of that rocky minerality.
