Black Fruit Punch

Da Wu Ye Dancong

  • Rank

    Smoke, burned nuts, and subtle coffee cherries. Very pleasant and stimulating bitterness. People who enjoy more fruity and light coffee might love this one.

Get ready for a fruity bomb of a tea.

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.
