Dancong isn't from Wu Yi. In fact it's pretty far away from Wu Yi.
The vendor is called Wuyi Origin. They sell both Dancong and Wuyi teas made by their families.

Re: White Tea & Britney Spears?

From what I can tell, Norwood got the story from the folks at Chado in L.A. where she was a customer.

Drake is more of a matcha guy, I think. :lol:

Re: What are your favorite tea/teaware blogs?

* https://www.teaformeplease.com/ Probably also counts as a vendor blog? Modern blog, but old-fashioned in that it does not focus on Chinese tea exclusively but is aware of it, and seems to have a foot in the door of a lot of different internet tea-worlds. Tea for Me Please here! I'm not a vendor, ...

Re: Shincha 2020, "the Year of COVID-19"

I've preordered some things from Yunomi but they may not be ready to ship until June. Placed my first order with Kettl to hold me over and they got to me within a few days since they are shipping from NYC. I am looking forward to digging into their Mebuki and Hachiju Hachiya Shincha (plus some match...

Re: Husband Tea Torture - YouTube Series

Encouraging to watch a healthy, happy, marriage. If I was ever in a relationship with someone like Jason who would participate patiently doing something that she did not care about, I don't remember when. Thanks for sharing. Thank you! We joke about it a lot but he really is incredibly tolerant and...

Husband Tea Torture - YouTube Series

I recently launched a new series on my YouTube channel where I taste tea with my husband who doesn't really like tea. We're only 2 episodes in but it has been a lot of fun so far. Gyokuro and Shou Puerh were hard nos. :lol:

Re: Chicago International Tea Festival 2019 (Nov. 1-3)

Excellent @Brent D! I think puerh is more intimidating so there's a lot less people who would feel comfortable leading a workshop on it. Maybe an idea for next year if this goes well :lol:

Re: Tea Varietals

The same problems that occurred on TeaChat exist here as well. There are many who feel they are gatekeepers, though no one gave them that authority. Why they need to be condescending instead of helpful is beyond me. OP: Camellia Sinensis var. Sinensis is smaller leafed and prefers cooler climates. C...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I forgot I had a sample of 2005 Red Star 7581 from Bitterleaf Teas so I brewed it up today. It's super clean tasting, which is nice since I'm really much more of a sheng drinker.

Welcome to the wonderful world of tea blogging! I think most of us start our blogs for the same reason that you did. I had a passion for tea and wanted to share it with others. I started my blog Tea for Me Please ( https://www.teaformeplease.com ) in 2008. My favorite teas are puerh and oolongs. I l...

I'm drinking a juicy and peachy Alishan from Song Yi Tea. It's so cold out today but drinking this is like spring in a cup :)
