We recommend brewing Dancong in gongfu style to get the full sensory experience that develops with each infusion. Dancong oolongs exhibit a remarkable ‘patience’ (耐泡)—meaning they last for many infusions.
These are just guidelines. It’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
