Song Zhong means the descendant of Song which gets its name from the local belief that some of the oldest tea trees are a direct descendant from tea trees from 1300 year ago. Song Zhong is a typical large leaf trunk varietal which can take on more mature fermentation and a higher roast. This results in a tea with downward mouthfeel and a fuller body than most Dan Congs. This ancient varietal is known for its low aromatics and a prominent woodsy note.
